Meet four-year-old Carter Thomas. As Carter's mother is planning his birthday party, a reminder appears on her phone regarding his annual wellness pediatric visit. She confirms the appointment using MEDITECH's MHealth app and answers the health assessment questionnaire in preparation for his office visit.
During Carter's physical exam, pediatrician Dr. Daniel Stevens detects an unusually low heart rate, prompting him to order an ECG test. After reviewing the results, Carter is referred to Dr. Tanya Lee, a cardiologist using the MEDITECH EHR at a local community hospital.
As Carter and his family navigate the healthcare system, MEDITECH Traverse including One Touch, One View, and One Step ensures that his medical information follows him everywhere he goes. Dr. Lee can see Carter's medical history including his heart rate, blood pressure readings, and referral notes with the summary of the ECG results from his pediatric visit with Dr. Stevens.
Dr. Lee sends orders to a colleague for a more extensive ECG and x-rays using One Step to the Children Hospital's other vendor EHR, to check Carter for congenital heart disease. Children's Hospital receives Carter's cardiology orders and schedules him for an appointment.
When Carter arrives for his appointment, Children's Hospital retrieves his medical records via CommonWell Health Alliance®, noting his peanut allergy and history of development delays. Once testing is completed at the hospital, Dr. Lee reviews the ECG and x-ray results from within MEDITECH using One Touch. She confirms Carter has a complete heart block and needs a pacemaker.
Carter is scheduled for surgery and receives the pacemaker at the Children's Hospital. After the procedure, Dr. Lee orders another ECG as well as more x-rays post-op to check on the device and lead wire placement.
Dr. Stevens can see Carter's clinical results from Dr. Lee's orders in Expanse using One View. He can also see Carter's test results, medication orders, diagnosis, and post-op discharge care plan from the Children's Hospital.
In addition, Carter's father can quickly and easily access all of Carter's health information from all locations in one place using the Apple Health Records on iPhone app.
