DILLON-Barrett Hospital in Dillon is transferring their hospital records to an online program.
The system called Epic is the most highly rated electronic hospital record system available today. The system will allow healthcare providers around the state to work from the same continuously updated charts.
Whenever patients are seen at Barrett Hospital & HealthCare or a Providence facility such as St. Patrick Hospital, Providence St. Joseph Medical Center or one of over 40 Providence Medical Group clinics in western Montana, healthcare providers will be able to work from the same comprehensive, continuously updated electronic record, creating real-time access to information.
Barrett hospital will implement this system in the following months. The system will connect Barrett Hospital with more than 27 hospitals and 200 clinics.
