In our last update about the new EHR (electronic health record) system which launches on Monday, Aug. 28, we shared your help is needed to complete some basic information, like your address, insurance and health history .  Whether you have been a patient for years, or are a new patient you will need to complete online forms one time — before any appointments after August 28th.

Six days prior to your next appointment, an email request will be sent asking you to pre-register for your upcoming appointment.  The email will contain a link to complete the online forms from home. This is the easiest option and will prevent delays at the time of your appointment.

It should take 15-20 minutes to complete and click the submit button.  The information you submit is encrypted for secure transfer to your personal digital medical record. Within in a few seconds, a confirmation will appear on your screen indicating the information was received.

Another option to complete the pre-registration is to arrive 30 minutes early for your appointment and complete the forms on an office iPad, prior to seeing your provider.

A couple of tips:

  • Be sure to complete and save each section as it is completed to avoid re-entering information.
  • Have available your driver’s license, insurance cards, and a list of medications, including vitamins and minerals taken, and the dates
    and types of previous surgeries.
  • If you are not comfortable with a computer, a family member might be a great resource to help complete the forms.

Like most medical records systems, it relies on having an accurate email. We do not sell your emails and will only use them to communicate with you about your care and the practice. This is a one-time request, and we sincerely appreciate your patience.

We believe the benefits to our patients will be many.  Stay tuned for information about using some of the great new tools.
