Christie Clinic and Carle have announced plans to share electronic health records of some patients beginning October 1st. It will only involve patients who see providers at both medical facilities. The records will be shared through Carle’s Community Connect platform.
‘’This improved connectivity will enhance all providers’ ability to care for our patients,’’ says Dr. William Schuh, Carle’s chief medical information officer. ‘’The biggest winners will be our patients,’’ he says.
‘’Community Connect brings so many benefits to patients and providers,’’ said William Pierce, Christie Clinic’s chief medical officer.
‘’Christie Clinic and Carle have shared a commitment to residents in our region,’’ said Pierce. ‘’Our providers, nurses and staff look forward to using the industry-leading Epic functionality to care for all patients,’’ he added.
The integration provides patients a complete view of their health records to best support managing their healthcare needs. When logging into their portal – whether MyCarle.com or MyChristie.com – patients will see what they have always seen at first. When they view upcoming appointments, all Christie Clinic and Carle appointments will appear.
Although Community Connect officially launches on October 1st, patients who are – or have been – both Christie Clinic and Carle patients may notice updates sooner.
