Electronic Medical Records

What is an electronic medical record (EMR)? An electronic medical record is a digital version of a patient’s paper chart that can be shared by doctors, hospitals and patients. The EMR computer system brings all patient information together in one secure database. A secure, single electronic medical record improves patient safety and the quality of care.

If you receive care at Summit Healthcare or an affiliated physician practice, your EMR will always be available to your healthcare treatment team. This feature will improve patient care across our community. This will help eliminate patients undergoing redundant testing or exams and physicians don’t lose time waiting to receive test results and diagnoses from a lab or other provider.
