Compass: Your Health Information- Safe, Secure and Everywhere
Fort HealthCare staff, clinicians and physicians have partnered with Cerner Corporation to implement a comprehensive Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. The partnership’s main goal is to upgrade existing health record capabilities at Fort HealthCare and to create a medical record system that provides critical medical data whenever and wherever it’s needed.
Integrated medical records software allows multiple users (if needed) to access one patient record at the same time — an impossible task with a cumbersome paper chart and multiple care locations. This immediate, secure, accurate online access to relevant, integrated clinical information allows medical professionals — physicians, nurses, pharmacists, therapists and lab technicians — to communicate instantly with the patient’s care team, facilitating the best care decisions possible.
Healthcare Information Technology, or Health IT, has already delivered on important and revolutionary changes in the way medical care is delivered. Electronic health records such as Fort HealthCare’s Compass EHR has reduced paperwork, improved communication among providers, helped coordinate care throughout the organization and reduced the effects of chronic diseases. Individual patients like you have access to your family’s medical information on-line, where you can review test results, schedule appointments, send messages to your doctor and record critical health and demographic information. Now, you can take greater responsibility for your and your family member’s care whether you are close to home or far, far away.
