On August 4th at 4:30am, Cooper University Hospital reached a significant milestone in the journey of maturing the Electronic Health Record (Epic) by taking a giant step toward the goal of a paperless record. I’m pleased to report that all Physician Documentation within the hospital is now being done with the EHR, placing Cooper in the forefront of a paperless record not only within the Delaware Valley, but the entire nation.
The Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers today announced the launch of the Camden Health Information Exchange (HIE), an electronic medical records interface that will allow Camden’s health care providers to access patient data from various sources. The Coalition makes this announcement in celebration of New Jersey Minority & Multicultural Health Month. The HIE epitomizes this year’s theme, “Take Control of your Health: Managing Chronic Diseases”, as the tool will allow providers to deliver improved care to their sickest patients.
