New Electronic Health Record System launches November 4

September 19th, 2017

A commitment to innovation is part of Cheshire Medical Center’s ongoing mission to provide safe, quality healthcare. For this reason, we are transitioning to a new integrated electronic health record system known as Epic on November 4. eD-H is the name for the EHR built on Epic software which is used by the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health system. The new system will enhance our ability to have up-to-date health records available to all our providers, with easy-to-access information for every patient.

Currently, Cheshire Medical Center clinicians may work in three or more information systems while caring for one patient. There are multiple manual processes in place to ensure that information moves reliably from one system to the next. A single EHR across the Medical Center campus, connected with the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health system, will help to ensure critical health information is available when and where it is needed. It will improve the coordination of our care and streamline many of our business activities.

We are excited that once the transition process is complete, the healthcare experience for our patients and their medical teams will be simply better. Learn more at cheshiremed.org/simply-better-records.
