New Hampshire's Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center Hospital Deploys Updated EHR

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H., has deployed an updated electronic health records system to replace its 15-year-old clinical information system, according to a news report by The Dartmouth.

The new EHR system, called eD-H, features online portals that allow patients and referring physicians to access patient information. The investment, totaling $80 million, was made in preparation for meaningful use incentive payments, which will be distributed to eligible healthcare providers who demonstrate meaningful use of health IT.

eD-H also connects DHMC's Lebanon, Manchester and Nashua campuses together, allowing for greater care coordination and timely access to pertinent patient information. Patients can also be more involved with their care by accessing the portals to make appointments, refill prescriptions and fill out questionnaires before their physician appointments, according to the news report.
