A4 Health Systems is moving to make digital medical records more readily available through a remote chart program.

The HealthMatics ED Remote Chart Access application is designed to permit secure web access for private care physicians, nurses and in-house care givers to records for patients who are treated at an emergency department.

“One of the benefits of healthcare information technology is the mobility of critical patient health information across the continuum of care,” said Ken Howard, executive vice president of A4, in a statement. “Hospitals are strengthening their relationship with the local physician community by offering innovative IT services, such as HMED RCA, that improve patient care, enhance access to vital health information and streamline workflow.”

Access to records is limited through secure user Ids and passwords.
