On October 31, 2020, Montefiore Nyack is moving to EPIC, a comprehensive electronic health record system that offers major benefits to patients and providers alike.
A centralized system will allow medical providers across healthcare institutions to secure access to a patient's entire clinical history. Improved efficiencies such as electronic prescriptions and messaging mean medical providers have more time to focus on better patient care.
Appointments can be scheduled electronically, and patients will have 24/7 access to their personal health information on MyChart, which is available in English and Spanish. Patients can view test results and key medical information, reducing the need for phone calls. Viewing and paying bills can all be done online, and appointed individuals can manage a dependent or family member's healthcare through proxy access.
