Information Technology and Quality
The Elliot Health System is proud of its commitment to innovative technologies for the advancement of quality practices and the promotion of health and safety throughout our organization. Through EPIC, our Electronic Medical Records system, physicians can immediately access information about a patient’s condition in order to diagnose quickly, efficiently, and correctly. These records provide an accurate and updated medical history, and are available to the Emergency Department health care providers even if a patient is unconscious or unable to provide important information, which could prove lifesaving.
An exciting component of EPIC is MyEChart, which provides patients with disease prevention, education and outreach. It currently allows patients to schedule appointments and look at certain lab and test results.
Sharing one accurate and up-to-date medical chart easily allows patients to be referred from primary care to specialists, to the hospital and to ambulatory centers. EPIC enhances the ability to monitor outcomes for our patients, identify opportunities for improvement, and maintain focus in our continuous pursuit of excellence in delivering optimal care for every patient we treat.
