Wireless Electronic Medical Record
The Family Medicine Center utilizes a wireless electronic medical record (EMR) system called eClinicalWorks. The center is fully integrated into the EMR, and many of the physicians use the wireless prescription fax system for prescribing medications from the Family Medicine Center as well as from the nursing homes. The EMR is easily accessed by the IPADS, which are provided to all faculty and residents, from any computer in the hospital or nursing homes, and from virtually anywhere else via the Internet.
The EMR can be used for:
- Hospital admission
- H & Ps
- Compiling procedure notes
- Viewing all labs and X-rays from the McLeod Health system.
- New Innovations Medical Education Management Suite
- Moodle for Curriculum Management
- Challenger for Board Review and Education
- Smartboard Interactive whiteboard system for daily lectures
