Why Shared Medical Records is Great for Patient Care

shared medical records with williams integracare

Longtime patients of our clinic may be aware of the shared medical record system Williams Integracare uses with other local medical clinics including the St. Cloud Hospital. Though Williams Integracare is independently owned, we are able to use the same EPIC/MyChart patient health record system used by many other clinics.

Combine this with the personalized service of a small clinic and you have the best of both worlds!

Convenient for Patients

If you have ever switched medical clinics before you likely know how much of a hassle it can be to have your records transferred to another clinic. You need to complete paperwork to authorize the transfer, then wait for someone to transfer your records before becoming available to your new provider.

Many of our new patients in central Minnesota enjoy a far easier process when visiting Williams Integracare. With our combined record system with the St. Cloud Hospital and other local clinics, the Integracare providers have easy access to the patient’s previous medical records. All without signing a release form!

Additionally, our Integracare patients that are seen at the St. Cloud Hospital have their Integracare treatment information easily available to those at the hospital. This shared information simplifies the process for patients and lets everyone put their mind on medical concerns, not paperwork.

Better Record-Keeping

These shared patient records go beyond medical care. Our chiropractic and physical therapy providers also use the same medical records program, meaning their appointment notes are available to medical providers. This is a unique distinction very few other local chiropractors or physical therapists can provide for their patients when it comes to making patient records immediately available.

Easy access to this additional information can be valuable to medical providers both at Integracare and the St. Cloud Hospital as they create a treatment plan for you.
