TBH Prepares to Implement New Electronic Health Record

The Bellevue Hospital (TBH) will go live on Thursday, June 1 with MEDITECH Expanse, a modern, cloud-based Electronic Health Record (EHR) for today’s healthcare needs. Expanse will provide TBH with a single EHR that seamlessly connects patient records across all TBH’s care locations.

“We are happy to be working with MEDITECH and look forward to implementing our new system,” said Timothy A. Buit, TBH president and chief executive officer.

“As we implement this system, please be patient with our staff as we learn new processes. You may experience delays at first, but our long-term goal is to increase functionality and interoperability of TBH’s EHR now and in the future.”

This shared electronic record will help to guide clinical decision-making by offering a comprehensive view of a patient’s health history, regardless of when or where a patient may have received care. And since the solution is cloud-based, physicians, nurses, and other clinicians at TBH can use mobile devices to view patient records, place orders, and document care at any time — whether they are in the office, rounding on the floor, or checking their schedule from home.

Expanse includes intuitive, web-based navigation that presents each member of a patient’s care team with real-time information, personalized to their unique workflows. Inherent clinical decision support ensures patient safety and helps clinicians react quickly to fluctuations in a patient’s condition.

Patients can also easily see new test results, review discharge instructions, and view upcoming appointments through TBH’s secure patient portal, Health eChart. This new portal will go live Thursday, June 1 and will be replacing our current patient portal, FollowMyHealth®.  For those patients who currently use FollowMyHealth®, you will need to enroll in the new portal. Beginning June 1, 2023, visit bellevuehospital.com and click on the Health eChart link.
