Why is SPMC making this change?

Currently, Summit Pacific Medical Center uses several programs to register patients and manage their records. This means that patients have to give and employees have to enter the same information identically multiple times. That leaves more room for error and can be frustrating for our patients.

In order to do the best for our patients, we need to have the best tools. Therefore, the EHR will allow us to streamline patient care even further by giving all members of the patient’s care team access to the patient’s latest information. With just a few keystrokes, lab and diagnostic imaging results and prescription details are available for the patient’s medical team allowing for more coordinated, patient-centered care.
