eRecord and ePartner: For Community Providers and their Staff
The University of Rochester Medical Center has transitioned to an integrated electronic health record system. eRecord is currently in place at both Strong Memorial and Highland Hospitals, as well as all URMC ambulatory practices. URMC is currently piloting eRecord with several community practices.
eRecord 2012 Upgrade: Happening May 5
On Sunday, May 5, eRecord will get a facelift, when we upgrade the system to version 2012. Hundreds of improvements - big and small - will occur to the entire system, impacting ALL areas including inpatient, ambulatory, ED, oncology, HIM, and pharmacy. More information on the Upgrade is available in the eRecord Jan./Feb. Update newsletter, and the Resource Library.
All faculty, staff and community providers must complete eLearning, which will take under one hour, but if you practice in both inpatient and outpatient settings, you’ll need to complete both groups of eLearnings. If you use ePartner only, the Upgrade will not impact you, and you will not need to complete any eLearning.
Learn more about eLearning and other eRecord Upgrade Resources.
ePartner: View Information on Your URMC Patients
ePartner is a view-only version of eRecord that allows you and your staff to view information on your patients’ URMC hospital stays, as well as access their tests and image results. Depending on how you work with URMC and our affiliates, we will offer to you either a complete view of the inpatient chart, or a scaled back view that provides quick and convenient views of lab results. A brief 20-minute online training session is required before using ePartner.
Learn how to get the process started for ePartner access for you and your practice/organization.
Expanding eRecord into our Community
URMC is currently partnering with several community practices to pilot our extension of the eRecord ambulatory system. Our intention is to make this offering available to other community practices in 2013. If you have any questions about this initiative, please contact Nancy Bales at 784-6144.
Classroom training is required before using eRecord. Call 276-8015 to schedule your class now, or read more about our training.
