Our records are part of the University of Rochester electronic medical record system known as eRecord
. Electronic medical records (EMR) improve the consistency and coordination of individual health care, allowing us to provide higher quality care with greater attention to patient safety. With eRecord, you and your care team have access to important information about your medications, allergies, medical conditions, and treatments that may affect your emotional well-being or response to medications. We appreciate that your health information is private and must be carefully protected. Following confidentiality laws (HIPAA
) on patient privacy, all EMR access is logged and retained and only those who are involved in your treatment or in Plan administration are permitted to see it.
