Flushing Hospital Medical Center recently implemented the EPIC system, an electronic medical record, which allows our professional staff to access patient records electronically from any computer equipped with EPIC software. The utilization of the EPIC system enables our physicians, nurses, support staff and administrators to communicate with one another about patient care in a much more efficient manner and reduces the opportunity for medical errors.
The EPIC system offers additional tools for both affiliated and independent physicians, as well as our patients, including:
MediSys Community Connect – An ambulatory version of the EPIC system for physicians affiliated with Flushing Hospital. Medisys Community Connect provides physicians with an affordable Electronic Medical Record and qualifies them for meaningful use incentives.
MediSys CareLink – A web based version of EPIC designed for community physicians. MediSys Care Link provides community physicians with access to their patient’s charts via the internet and real-time notification of patient admission and discharge.
MediSys My Chart – An internet application available through EPIC that allows patients to access portions of their medical records. Patients can receive test results, and review their medical history online and communicate with their healthcare team via email.
