Guthrie Hits New Milestones in Electronic Medical Record Usage
More and more patients are using online tools to manage their health care and interact with their care providers. Guthrie’s electronic medical record system, eGuthrie, recently reached a milestone of 100,000 users.
Guthrie was the first in the region to offer patients electronic access to their health information, helping patients participate in their own care and empowering them to be knowledgeable about the health issues that impact them. This tool connects Guthrie patients to their family physician, as well as most Guthrie specialists and sub-specialists.
Patients can register online at e.guthrie.org and through the MyChart app for Apple and Android devices.
