The Delta County Memorial Hospital is set to completely launch itself into the 21st century by having all its records including lab work and admissions and billing converted to electronic medical records. In fact, every dept. will be affected by this transition. This has not been an overnight decision. In fact, the process began about 3 years ago and was finalized when they decided to let Meditech Systems do the job. The system is flexible enough to interact with whatever technology any employee uses. As for doctors, they can even send their prescription orders electronically to the pharmacy of the patient’s choosing. And nurses will be able to dole out medication by scanning the patient’s wrist band.
