Regional Health made a commitment as part of quality and patient safety initiatives to have an electronic health record before the federal government developed the concept of “meaningful use.” The “One System of Care, One Electronic Chart” concept was a long-term goal of their organization, accomplished through electronically sharing a patient’s medical record among Regional Health’s five hospitals and other area health care facilities. Implementing a hybrid electronic record using a scanning and archiving application was the first step toward the long-term goal of an electronic health record. The project was successfully achieved despite many challenges, including some limited resources and physician concerns.
