EMR is here

Mercy Medical Group is excited to announce the implementation of our Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system, a new state-of-the-art healthcare management tool.

The next time you visit one of you Mercy Medical Group doctors, you will see a big change. Each of our facilities is now equipped with computer terminals and access to complete information right at your doctor’s fingertips.

The EMR system will help us serve you better in a variety of ways. Since your physician now has immediate access to your complete medical records, delays from tracking down stray charts will be eliminated. If you phone your doctor’s office with a question, we will be able to pull up your medical record and respond more quickly. And, since both your Primary Care Physician and any Mercy Medical Group specialists you might be seeing will be able to look at your medical records at any time, there is now no need to send a paper chart back and forth between locations.

Rest assured though, high security measures exceeding federal standards will ensure the privacy of your records.

In addition to providing doctors with easy access to complete patient information, the EMR system offers the ability to simply track all medications you are taking in order to help avoid drug interactions and drug allergies.
