Asante Continues to Roll Out Electronic Health Record Functionality
Hot on the heels of its successful April 6 Epic Electronic Health Record (EHR) system launch, Asante today officially released the MyChart mobile application. Already available to the more than 150 patients who created “MyChart powered by Asante” accounts in the three weeks since it launched, the mobile app is now available to all Asante patients who create a MyChart account.
MyChart powered by Asante offers Asante patients personalized and secure online access to portions of their medical record from home or from any other convenient location with Internet access. The service is also available at Asante Community Connect providers, including Southern Oregon Pediatrics. Patients at Asante Physician Partners sites have limited MyChart capabilities today, but will have full access later this summer.
While several significant aspects of this early release of Asante’s MyChart are already active, including online and mobile Bill Pay and proxy access to a dependent’s MyChart account, new features will continue to be released regularly. For instance, patients will soon be able to manage their appointments in MyChart; view their current prescriptions and request refills; and see certain lab and test results.
Once a patient creates a MyChart account, he or she can then download the free mobile application—available for iPhone and Android devices—to view the MyChart profile on the go.
This is more than just a technology upgrade – with Epic and MyChart, Asante will continue to improve patient outcomes, enhance the patient experience, and reduce the costs of care.
