Electronic Health Records are here!
Summit Family Practice began the “go-live” process with our new electronic health record (EHR) in July (Anchorage) and August (Palmer). This is a work in progress, and we are at the very beginning! We appreciate your patience as we make this transition.
We are asking you to update your demographics and health history on paper forms the first time we see you; after that updates can be done directly into the EHR.
The providers are now recording visit notes in the HER, and continue to send prescriptions electronically.
Other changes coming soon:
A secure patient portal: access health information including your medications, allergies and immunizations; inform us of changes to your demographic or health information; request appointments; receive visit summaries, test results and reminders by email. Other features will be added over time.
An electronic interface with LabCorp: test results from LabCorp will download directly into your electronic chart and the provider will receive a message including a notice whether results are abnormal.
Our Anchorage and Palmer providers welcome new patients, including those with Medicare and Medicaid.
