Use of Technology
At the Elmhurst Clinic, we recognize the important role that technology plays in health care today. That's why we have consistently embraced new concepts as they have become available.
We've implemented innovative ideas that are designed to improve the quality of care and make it more convenient for you – all without compromising your privacy.
Electronic Health Record
Elmhurst Clinic pushes paper boundaries
In 2005, we partnered with NextGen, the top provider of physician office practice software to implement an organized system to share and manage clinical and administrative patient health information.
Electronic Health Records improve documentation quality, increase accuracy of shared information and ensure your safety by checking for possible drug interactions. Our physicians are also saving time ordering prescriptions, labs and diagnostic studies, which saves you time.
This is unique for a physician group practice like ours, but we are committed to finding new ways to transform the way our physicians communicate and obtain vital information.
A faster, easier way to check in
To make the process of checking in for an appointment faster and easier, we now have electronic kiosks that provide a safe and secure way to check in with the swipe of a credit or bank card, your thumbprint or by typing your last name.
On-screen instructions walk you through the process of verifing your appointment, demographic and insurance information, and making your co-pay. Then, all you have to do is proceed to the department for your appointment where our staff will be waiting to greet you.
We are concerned about the safety and security of your private information so the kiosks are configured to maintain your privacy during the check-in process. If you have any questions or concerns, our staff is available to provide assistance during the check in process.
