BOULDER - The Children's Hospital, Exempla Healthcare and Kaiser Permanente Colorado are now linked via electronic medical records.
By having the independent organizations linked, patients can visit any medical facility in the three networks and have doctors instantly access the patient's records.
"As a pediatrician, I've seen the benefits of health-IT exchange first-hand. With quicker access to more information, I can now diagnose, treat and care for the children in my practice with even greater confidence and improved results," said Robert Miller, a Kaiser doctor.
Doctors can access information such as immunization records, blood type, X-rays and allergies.
In addition to other locations for all three organizations, The Children's Hospital has a location in Broomfield, Exempla manages Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center in Lafayette and Kaiser has clinics throughout the Boulder Valley.
