An Electronic Medical Record is a specialized computer system used by hospitals and healthcare providers. Known as an EMR, this system streamlines patient care across healthcare settings.
Patients benefit from an EMR because care teams have real-time access to the latest patient data. Doctors, nurses and other clinicians use this information to make better clinical decisions and improve the quality and safety of care.
Patients also benefit from increased communication throughout the care team that may include physicians, nurses, therapists, dietitians, laboratory professionals and chaplains.
Centegra Health System will launch a new Electronic Medical Record May 6 to improve the way it provides care to patients. This initiative is the result of more than a year of intense collaboration between Centegra Associates and physicians and is an important advancement in the way our community receives care.
