Amberwell Health Hiawatha is excited to announce that we are now live with MEDITECH Expanse patient electronic health records system for care at Amberwell Hiawatha and Amberwell Highland Clinic. Patients' first visits after November 1 may take a bit longer as our clinicians fully transition to the new system, but we are excited about the improved care processes that are now possible with the new EHR.
MEDITECH Expanse provides a single EHR that seamlessly connects patient records across Amberwell facilities. This shared record helps to guide clinical decision-making by offering a more comprehensive view of a patient’s health history, regardless of where a patient received care. Patients can also view their records, manage their own care, and interact with Amberwell providers through a secure patient portal, myAmberwellHealth.
Patients of Amberwell Hiawatha and Amberwell Highland Clinic will be able to access their online patient records for care received prior to November 1 through the Athena EHR patient portal through December 31, 2022. For care received after November 1, 2022, patients may view health records online via the myAmberwellHealth patient portal. Visit amberwellhealth.org/myamberwellhealth to learn more and request activation.
The Health Information Management team at Amberwell Health Hiawatha will continue providing copies of patient health records and helpful assistance for patients through this transition. Please call 785-742-6180 with any questions regarding the new MEDITECH Expanse electronic health records system or our patient portal.
