On November 14, 2012, Children’s Hospital will implement the Meditech application for document scanning known as Meditech Scanning and Archiving or Meditech SCA. Taking this important step advances our organization’s long-term strategy for an integrated medical record.
Scanning handwritten medical records, documentation received from other facilities, and other paperwork into Meditech SCA will allow these documents to be viewed in the Meditech Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system alongside other electronic documentation.
ChartMaxx access will not be discontinued and will still be available for access to historical medical records on the patient.
The organization recognizes the importance of our affiliate/remote users and will work with you through an assigned contact on access and training during this transition. We recognize some remote users access ChartMaxx exclusively, while some are using both Meditech and ChartMaxx, depending on the information need.
To help you understand what images will be scanned and where those images will be located the organization is providing you with the following modules and reference guide:
- EMR Scanning & Archiving educational module
- EMR Quick Reference Guide
- Meditech Update for Providers – Record Completion: Missing Documents educational module
