Mercy continues to invest in the latest Information Technology (I.T.) to enhance patient safety and clinical quality. Our efforts have been recognized nationally as one of the nation’s Most Wired hospitals by Hospitals & Health Networks magazine, a trade publication published by the American Hospital Association.
What did we do to earn Most Wired?
This year, Mercy completed the deployment of Sage Physician EMR (electronic medical records) across all Mercy Physician Services clinics. This effort included Automated Quality Reporting and an integrated Patient Portal. An enhanced patient portal currently is in the works to give you improved 24/7 access to your medical information.
Mercy also implemented a system for web-based viewing of radiology images by physicians and clinical staff. This means quicker and easier reading of your images, like CT scans or X-rays, to streamline the care process.
