Here We Go...

After years of doing research, we have made the decision to start our transition to electronic health records.
The decision was made at the end of 2009. Since then we have been working on all the information that goes on behind the scenes.
If you've tried to make an appointment with Dr. Mackey - you know that he's been busy working on our templates and the clinical data that the physicians will use to document your child's visit.

For the past couple of months everyone on our staff has been entering patients into the new system. We're going as fast as we can - but we don't have everyone in yet. We may still need to ask you for information when you call for an appointment. The biggest change you'll notice is - no more chart numbers. When you call, we will ask for your child's date of birth.

For the past month we have started entering immunization information, allergy and medication history. We are also scanning important medical information, consents, and waivers into the new electronic chart.

Tomorrow we start our training in the "practice management" program. That is... making appointments and doing billing. The follow week we go "live" with it. So starting next week - all appointments will be in the new system.

Keep checking back for information about our journey.
