Electronic Medical Records

With the rapid advances in technology, we often see a clash between tradition and technology. This battle is highlighted in medicine, primarily in medical documentation. Many doctors find themselves choosing between a comfortable method, such as paper charts or dictation, or a newer computer system. 

We utilize electronic medical records as a tool to allow for storage of medical information that is more secure, accessible, and efficient than paper charting. While there are many benefits to electronic systems, we understand the potential for creating an impersonal patient experience. Our goal is to use technology as our servant, not our master, and to ensure we spend more time looking at you than our computers.
 

Spend Less Time Checking In!

One of the most exciting attributes of our electronic system is the ability for you to fill out patient information prior to your appointment, through our online portal. This information will upload directly into your patient record, once validated by our staff. You also have the ability access your medical records, including lab results, through a secure log-in. Compare the different check in scenarios below.
