St. Catherine is the first Catholic Health Services (CHS) hospital to launch CHS eHealth, the electronic medical records (EMR) system. The Epic-powered EMR further promotes patient safety, and patients and their families also benefit from having fewer forms to complete.
The leading EMR in the nation, Epic serves more than 42% of the U.S. population. It is rated by KLAS, a leading research firm, as the number 1 acute care EMR for 7 consecutive years and the top overall software suite based on 25 separate performance measures, as well as the leading ambulatory care EMR for 13 consecutive years.*
Working from a single patient health record enables caregivers to efficiently coordinate treatments. With the Epic-powered EMR in use at St. Catherine—and many affiliated physicians implementing the EMR at their practices—patients will have greater peace of mind, knowing health care providers have comprehensive and instant information.
