Galway Clinic First Irish Hospital to Provide Patient Access to the EHR
Galway Clinic is an organization with many firsts under their belt when it comes to healthcare IT in Ireland. First to use a closed-loop management solution, first hospital to achieve HIMSS Stage 6, and next year, the first to provide patients access to an electronic health record — with the MEDITECH 6.1 EHR.
“At Galway we pride ourselves in leading the way with healthcare technology,” said Raphael Jaffrezic, CIO at Galway Clinic, in a press release by BridgeHead Software.
“It’s important to us that we empower our patients to take control of their own care and to become an active player in their own treatment. We are, therefore, upgrading our EHR system and aim to put this in place by November 2016 to become the first Irish hospital to provide patients access to the EHR.”
