Deaconess CareConnect

Access patient records anywhere, any time, at any location.

Deaconess CareConnect is a fully integrated electronic medical record (EMR) that provides health care professionals with the tools to streamline their day-to-day clerical functions, increase the efficiency of their practice and enhance the care and safety of their patients. With Deaconess CareConnect, you have access to your patients' records 24 hours a day, seven days a week from any computer with an Internet connection-at home, on the road, or in the office. Check lab results, order diagnostic tests, prescribe medications-you can do them all, day or night, regardless of where you are.

Secure. Integrated. Comprehensive.

You access CareConnect through a secure Citrix connection, so you can rest assured that your information is safe. Other authorized health care professionals can access patient records, allowing for efficient consults and communication, but fee schedules and other practice-specific information are protected.

CareConnect is built on the award-winning Epic EMR system, widely considered the most robust, customizable system on the market today. Unlike many other EMR systems, which are often cobbled together from multiple modules and may not "talk to" each other well, CareConnect is fully integrated. A change to one part of a patient's record will update every other appropriate section automatically-crucial when dealing with medications, allergies and other critical patient data.

Deaconess CareConnect is more than just a medical record, however. Comprehensive scheduling, registration and billing functions are available as well. And every part communicates seamlessly with every other.

Customizable

CareConnect provides a wide range of templates to get you started, but each one is fully customizable to match your office workflow and practice style. The CareConnect support team is available to help you set up and modify CareConnect templates.

Dedicated Support

From the moment you sign on with Deaconess CareConnect, you'll have access to our highly trained team of support personnel. Backed by EPIC, the CareConnect support team is dedicated to working only with referring practices, not internal Deaconess clients. From pre-implementation training, through go-live to follow-up and troubleshooting, the CareConnect support team is available to get your whole practice on board with the new system and help you configure it to best meet your particular needs.

Getting Started with CareConnect

The Deaconess CareConnect team provides an install service to get your practice up and running quickly.  They also provide extensive training before you "go live" and follow-up support as you get familiar with the new system. The team can also evaluate your current hardware and recommend upgrades, if necessary.
