St. Luke's health system implements myStLuke's EHR at all locations

Idaho-based St. Luke's health system has made a system-wide, simultaneous switch to electronic medical records.

The EHR system myStLuke's, which went live Oct. 1, allows healthcare providers at any of St. Luke's locations to access the same patient records. The health system made a $108 million investment into the system, which is expected to reduce hospital costs by streamlining access to patient records and communication between different St. Luke's locations. Patients can access their personal data and health charts through myChart, a secure EHR.

Clinicians will only have access to certain files; this permission varies by specialty and role. St. Luke's says it will ensure cybersecurity by conducting routine audits of myStLuke's to verify who has accessed patient records.
