Public invited to view new system for electronic health records

Plumas District Hospital invites the public to an interactive preview of its new electronic health record, Cerner Millennium CommunityWorks HER, on Wednesday, July 31, from 4 to 7 p.m., at the West End Theatre in downtown Quincy.

During this hands-on showcase, attendees can use iPads to explore features of the patient portal and watch a 15-minute “Day in the Life” video that provides an overview of the fully integrated electronic health record. Attendees will also be able to visit with PDH staff and representatives from Cerner’s implementation team.

The event includes giveaways to attendees and other prizes every half hour. Light refreshments will be available.

The new EHR will go live in September providing integrated digital records of a patient’s health history. Through the patient portal, patients will be able to send secure messages to their doctor, request appointments, access their health history and pay bills.
