Electronic Records at Mercy Medical

Posted: Updated:

Improving patient safety and providing caregivers with more complete, timely information, all in an effort to provide a better patient experience.

That's how Lori Hahn, Vice President of Nursing describes the latest transition to electronic records at Mercy Medical Center in Williston.

Mercy 'went live' with the MediTec 6 system this week which means, instead of a paper chart, each patient will have an electronic computer chart.

The Windows based MediTec system will tie Mercy Medical to other clinics in the state and other care providers nationally.

Hahn says that while this system is not currently accessible outside of medical facilities, it does position the hospital to be in better contact with patients at home in the future.

(Lori Hahn, Mercy Medical Center VP of Nursing and Risk Management) "Other facilities that have caring bridges, it positions us to do things like that in the future, you could sign in online and look at your lab work and do things like that. So positions us to get ready for that."

During the transition, Hahn recommends arriving 15 minutes early for clinic appointments.
