As we move further into the use of our EMR (electronic medical record) or EHR (electronic health record) we again want to extend our thanks for all those who have been part of our initial journey into the electronic world of medical records. Our focus, short of further improving our efficiency is to get more folks to sign up for MY CHART, your electronic access to your health information. After completing a physician visit, you will be given an access code that will only be active for 72 hours. It is used to establish your MY CHART account. We recommend that you establish one as it is your personal portal to refill requests, laboratory results, medication lists and many other features.
We hope that this journey into the next phase of healthcare is as exciting to you as it has been for us! But as its name implies, EPIC is a large writing of literature, so will will our EPIC be a large part of our future in healthcare together!
