Montana hospital selects athenahealth EHR: 3 things to know

Culbertson, Mont.-based Roosevelt Medical Center is transitioning to an athenahealth EHR, according to Roundupweb.

Three things to know:

1. Roosevelt Medical Center has been working with athenahealth since January to design and implement the EHR system.

2. The cloud-based EHR will help integrate patients' diagnoses and treatment plans as well as hospital administration and management on a single system.

3. Patients will also have access to the EHR's patient portal, which individuals can use to schedule appointments, message their providers and view test results, among others.

"This [EHR transition] is about delivering better healthcare by embracing technology and the convenience it can provide our patients," Roosevelt Medical Center Information Technology Director Brian Fordyce told the publication.
