Patients can text 23000 with the word ER in the text body to find out the wait time from their cell phone. Electronic Health Record (EHR) – With EHR, access to patient health information is simplified and patient safety and quality improved. Our hospitals have brought numerous clinical components for the EHR on-line through major investments in technology. Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) –The PACS system immediately digitizes images such as X-rays, and other scans including CT, MRI and PET, so they can be stored and electronically viewed on screens anywhere. This enables doctors and other health care professionals to access the images, even remotely, and to compare new images with previous images at the touch of a button. Electronic Medication Bar Coding System (eMAR) – We led a national effort to reduce medication errors by placing this system in all of our hospitals. Bar codes on medications are scanned at the patient's bedside, providing our clinical staff with an effective tool to ensure that the right patient receives the right medication at the right time through the right route. __________________________________________________ Accreditations and CertificationsACCREDITED HOSPITAL (JOINT COMMISSION) ACCREDITED CHEST PAIN CENTER WITH PCI (SCPC) ACCREDITED COMMUNITY COMPREHENSIVE CANCER PROGRAM (ACoS CoC)CERTIFIED ACUTE MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION (AMI) (JOINT COMMISSION)CERTIFIED ADVANCED PRIMARY STROKE CENTER (JOINT COMMISSION)
