UCSF Medical Center Goes Live With EHR, Patient Portal

UCSF Medical Center has implemented its new electronic health system at its Mount Zion clinic, with plans to have the system implemented across the entire health enterprise by the beginning of 2012, according to a hospital news release.

The EHR system allows healthcare providers to more easily access and share patient health information, reduces medical errors and duplicative tests and handles practice management processes. In addition to the new system, the medical center has launched UCSF MyChart, a patient portal that allows patients to communicate with hospital physicians and staff, view lab results and make appointments.
