Our hospital is connected…
On June 20, 2009, Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara Medical Center launched a new state-of-the-art electronic medical record computer system in our hospital.
The system is the same one Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara Medical Center doctors use during office visits to view members’ medical record information, and order prescriptions and tests.
Doctors, nurses and other hospital care providers will now have secure access to patients’ electronic medical records and will use wireless computers–rather than paper charts and forms–to document patient vital signs and medical information at the bedside. This will allow them to quickly and efficiently order medications, tests and procedures.
We are excited to bring this electronic medical record system to our hospital. As we do, we are committed to providing the highest level of service and care our members have always expected from us – just with a few more tools to help us do it!
