UConn Health’s new integrated electronic health record (EHR), UConn HealthOne, launched this spring, making patient records easily accessible to all members of care teams and to the patient.
HealthOne represents a technological, clinical, and operational transformation aimed at enhancing the patient experience. At its heart is an EHR platform, powered by health care software company Epic, that facilitates collaboration, knowledge-driven care coordination, and continuous improvement.
The integrated EHR takes most paper — and the turnaround times associated with paper — out of the clinical process, making provider notes available in real time and lab and test results available quickly. For providers, that means a seamless flow of information following the patient throughout their encounter not only with UConn Health but also with other health care systems through HealthOne’s interoperable Care Everywhere tool. All members of a care team, including referring physicians, will have access to the same up-to-date patient information at the same time.
Patients using HealthOne get more efficient care and can access their test results and other health information at any time. Through myHealthOne, the new, secure online portal, patients can access tools they can use to message their care team, request prescription refills, and manage appointments.
