Important: CKHS Has Implemented Electronic Data Management (EDM)
Key Implementation Dates:
- Jan. 28: Records of discharges that occur on this day and any day after will be scanned and converted to electronic documents. Access to any medical records of care provided on Jan. 28 and any day after that will only able to be done through the EDM system.
- Feb. 12: Clinicians will begin to have the ability to electronically sign off on charts that have entered into the system since Jan. 28.
The Health Information Management Department (Medical Records) staff will scan all handwritten forms — including progress notes, orders and nursing documentation — into the EDM repository after each patient’s discharge. Any electronic current-based results will be combined with the scanned images to form the hospital legal medical record.
What This Means for Physicians
Physicians will be able to electronically complete and edit medical records remotely. Physicians will also be required to review and sign off on records electronically.
Training and Assistance
