Electronic Medical Records

Kaleida Health is committed to advancing new technology in all areas of operation to increase efficiency, insure patient safety and improve quality of care. This specifically includes implementing comprehensive health information and EMR initiatives. Moving from a paper-based to electronic records process will transform the delivery of care to our community.

An effective EMR system is where information management, medical practice and the business of healthcare delivery all combine to better serve the patient. By leveraging information, training and management to improve quality and efficiency standards, Kaleida Health hopes to achieve efficiency in healthcare through technology.

While medical errors cost the health care industry billions of dollars per year, EMR offers a new look at patient’s medical information.
