Welcome to the next chapter of your Ballad Health story.
We’re listening to the pulse of how to provide the highest-quality healthcare in the region. That begins with offering you the most compassionate and qualified healthcare providers and providing them with exceptional tools to write patients’ health stories from beginning to end. We’ve adopted a top tier electronic health records system called Epic that offers reliability, security and superior quality; it’s what our patients deserve.
When you’re not well, safety and convenience are the last things you should have to worry about. With all of our hospitals and clinics now utilizing one electronic health record (EHR) system, the chapters of your health story can remain securely in one place. One record means all your healthcare encounters within Ballad Health are stored in a single, easily-accessible space, increasing your safety and streamlining your healthcare experience. For instance, if you visited the Franklin Woods Community Hospital emergency room today, the ER doctor could see what medications your Ballad Health Medical Associates family physician prescribed to you at your last annual visit.
The benefits don’t stop there. The Epic EHR is a world-class, award-winning system that empowers you to manage your health through its secure online patient portal, MyChart. Unlike paper medical records, MyChart is accessible online and securely stores important health information like test results, prescriptions, immunization history, allergies and appointments. MyChart can be used on a computer, smartphone or tablet.
