Westmed Moving to AthenaHealth EHR in November

Westmed Moving to AthenaHealth EHR in November

Westmed is excited to announce that on November 16th we will be transitioning over to a new Electronic Health Record (EHR), athenahealth. The Westmed team is looking forward to bringing this innovative system into our practice to offer you new digital check in processes, enhanced visit efficiencies, and improved communication with your providers through the new Patient Portal.

What Should I Expect?

It’s important to understand that with a new electronic health record, some things may take a little longer than you are used to in the beginning. For example, you may be asked more questions than you are usually asked during the scheduling and check-in processes, as we work quickly to register you within our new systems. We do ask that you bring an updated copy of your insurance card and ID to any upcoming appointments to ensure that we have the most up to date information in our records.

Please know that we are working hard to make this a smooth transition for our patients and avoid any disruption to your care. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience you may experience during interim period.

Some new features that we are bringing into the practice will include:

    • Mobile Check-In Processes and Pre-Visit Forms
    • Enhanced Online Scheduling
    • New Web-Based Patient Portal
    • Easy Access to Your Medical Records

As always, we remain committed to ensuring that the quality of your healthcare remains unaffected, and that you have a great experience with our team. We look forward to using the new capabilities of this technology to better support your healthcare needs. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition.
