Electronic Health Records
We use Electronic Health Records (EHR) to record all of your health information. We make a sincere effort to not let the computer presence distract from our personal connection in visits, but type we must. This system is essential as it allows all of your health information to be clear, centralized, and easily accessible. Also, it saves uncountable reams of paper.
We are thrilled that our EHR system has recently developed a patient portal, which easily connects you to your health information. The patient portal is a webpage that you can log onto which provides access to health records and communication including:
• Access to lab results, vaccination records, medication lists
• Secure messaging with your physician
• Online scheduling of appointments
If you are an established patient, you will receive an email inviting you to sign up for the patient portal, if you haven’t already done so. You can certainly choose not to enroll, but we encourage you take advantage of this system to access your records and communicate with your physician. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions about your patient portal account. This system is new and far from perfect, but they are continually making updates to make access and communication smoother.
