Modern electronic medical record technology
I had a screening mammogram today at 3:45 at a breast center about 15 miles from my internist. At 5:15 I got an email notice that I had a new message on the MyChart app on my phone. MyChart is the patient access to the electronic medical record. It was a message from my internist with test results - mammogram was negative. Wow - I was amazed at the efficiency of this. I don't have a lot of anxiety about mammograms but if you did, how nice to get the results before you even get home. I like computers and technology and very happy that healthcare facilities are finally moving beyond the paper charts. It makes it possible to do all these cool things with technology.
Are your healthcare providers pretty progressive with technology?
