Ivinson Updates Electronic Health Records System

This summer, Ivinson prepares to update electronic health records system to Epic, the leading provider of electronic health records in the country.

Begin­ning the end of August, patients at Ivin­son Memo­r­i­al Hos­pi­tal will receive an elec­tron­ic health record, or EHR through Epic, the lead­ing provider of elec­tron­ic health records in the country. 

When eval­u­at­ing dif­fer­ent EHR plat­forms it was impor­tant for us to find a sys­tem that allows for ease of use, func­tion­al­i­ty, and inte­gra­tion. Epic is the most wide­ly used EHR in the coun­try – this will help improve our con­ti­nu­ity of care for our patients, both with­in Ivin­son and with oth­er health­care providers,” explains Nicole Rooney, Ivinson’s Chief Nurs­ing Officer 

An EHR col­lects all of a patient’s health infor­ma­tion, includ­ing lab tests, imag­ing stud­ies, physi­cian notes, med­ica­tions pre­scribed, vac­ci­na­tions and more. All of this infor­ma­tion is secure­ly stored in one online loca­tion that is acces­si­ble to the patient and their health­care providers. Ivinson’s new EHR, Epic, is the lead­ing provider of EHRs in the coun­try with over 190 mil­lion records. 

With the tran­si­tion to Epic, Ivin­son patients will notice impor­tant changes. The Patient Por­tal, where patients access their records will have a new inter­face. Patients will also begin to receive reminder phone calls and/​or text mes­sages through the new Patient Prompt pro­gram. Addi­tion­al­ly, patients will notice a change in the way their bill looks and how they access the online pay­ment sys­tem. The Epic sys­tem will make it eas­i­er for patients to access their records and take an even more active role in their health.
