Personal Health Information

Each time you visit HeartSong, a record of your visit is made. This account serves as a basis for planning treatment, a tool for information-sharing among clinicians, legal documentation of your care, and a means to verify that services billed were actually provided. It may also be used to assess and improve care, or as data (without your personal information included) for medical research and public health management. All information is organized into one record called your medical chart.

Continuity of Care

Information in your medical chart is used to maintain a continuity of care -- an ongoing therapeutic relationship that allows your doctor to integrate new information quickly and make decisions from a whole-person perspective effectively because of personal familiarity with your history. As part of the information-gathering process, your doctor records your personal comments about your health and sociocultural situation, clinical observations about your condition and progress, diagnoses, and a plan for your care. In this way, your future care builds upon past history and treatment, and you don't have to keep retelling your story.

Electronic Medical Records

An Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is a secure, real-time, point-of-care, patient-centered information resource for clinicians. It provides access to health information where and when health care providers need it, automating and streamlining the workflow while closing loops in communication and response that can result in delays or gaps in care.
