EMR:

All of the patients in our facilities are registered in our dedicated EMR. We have a virtual MOA that ensures that faxes are distributed to MRP’s as they come into our inbox.

We have integrated a variety of e-forms into our EMR to ensure that a paper copy of any consultation, PPO or phone call is submitted to the facility upon completion. Lab results are also distributed to each patient’s chart to ensure that there is continuity of care. Other e-forms includes:

  • PPO’s for both facilities
  • Phone Call Template
  • MOST
  • Order forms for both facilities
  • Lab Requisitions
  • CT and X-Ray Requisitions
