On January 28 Summit Pacific is going live with a new electronic health record, Epic.
We’re excited to share with you that we’re in the process of moving to a new medical record system called Epic that will give each patient a single electronic health record (EHR). Epic is the world’s most integrated and shared EHR and ensures providers have access to the same information. Epic will launch on January 28, 2023, with significant enhancements to both patient and employee experience.
While we currently have our own electronic medical record system, Epic offers many advantages – the most important is that your medical history, medications, and treatment records will reside all in one place for all providers involved in your care.
Caregivers across our hospital district have spent hours training to prepare for this change in hopes that the transition will as smooth as possible for our patients. If you visit us during this transition, you may experience a longer than normal wait due to us needing to re-visit medications, allergies and problems during each patients visit. During this time, we humbly ask for your patience and understanding.
We are proud to be your trusted partner in health and wellness, and we look forward to continuing to serve you!
Patients May Notice the Following Changes
- Billing statements will look different.
- Patient’s initial visit may take a bit longer as we ensure information is correct in the new system.
- Patients will be asked to offer a list of current medications.
- Patients will be asked to show insurance cards at next visit.
- Patients will have a new patient portal called MyChart for access to records, ability to request appointments, pay bills and more!
