2013-10-29 – St. Rita’s Hospital First in Country to Pilot Epic’s MyChart Bedside
St. Rita’s Hospital began a pilot program of Epic’s newest technology, the MyChart Bedside application, in late September. Available on tablets provided by St. Rita’s or on the patient’s own Android tablet, MyChart Bedside is the first mobile patient tool that provides information tied to the electronic medical record, including information on the patient’s test results, medicine, and upcoming procedures.
It also provides educational information related to the patient’s condition and treatment, as well as contact with care providers. If a patient has a question or request that is not urgent, they can send their nurse a message.
