IMPORTANT POLICIES REGARDING ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS (EMR)

As you’ve probably figured out by now, the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) will be bringing a lot of changes to the way health care is delivered in America. Along with additional governmental regulations comes new, advanced access and control of your personal medical information.

As a patient at WholeHealth Chicago, you now have the opportunity to gain control of your personal medical records.  As a subscriber-member of our EMR system, you will have access to:

  1. Your medical records on-line from anywhere in the world and will be able to add any new data (lab, MRI and x-ray, medications, consultations from specialists, etc.) to your EMR.
  2. Private communications with your practitioners through a secure channel. (A nominal fee may be charged for some communications that require medical decision-making.)
  3. Our patient scheduling system with the ability to schedule your appointments on-line without calling our office. You will also receive appointment reminders two days prior to your appointment.
  4. Electronic prescribing. You will be able to securely e-mail your physician for a medication renewal and your physician will contact the pharmacy you have selected with your membership. Certain prescriptions, like controlled substances, will continue to require a paper prescription.
  5. Your medical records for practitioner services and lab reports. You will receive lab results and MRI/x rays reports online.

 

In Summary, the Benefits of Becoming a Subscriber-Member

  • Access to your medical records by a secure and private electronic system
  • Secure and private communication with your physician(s) and/or practitioner(s)
  • Access to appointment scheduling, cancellations, and appointment reminders
  • Electronic medication prescribing and prescription renewal
  • Laboratory, MRI, and x-ray reports sent directly to your accessible health records
  • On-line referral to specialists and other therapists

Your membership begins with a free 30-day trial.  Individual membership is $49.00 per year or $75.00 for a family. Enrollment is optional; however, non-members will not have access to the benefits listed above.

  • Male Menopause–Is It Real?

    Short answer: Yes, but don’t hope for any quick fixes—that’s so-o-o pharmaceutical industry think. Another way to view male menopause: Sure, a ball will bounce, only less and less. I get asked about male menopause all the time, almost always by women (admittedly they represent the majority of my patients), but only rarely by my male patients who, for the most part, don’t seem to Read More

  • How To Not Gain Weight

    Please note this Health Tip will not tell you how to lose weight. If you want to browse the offerings on that topic, go to amazon and search for diet books. Once our largest bookstore attempted to track the numbers, but when they surpassed 95,000 it apparently gave up and now tell us that the number is “over 60,000.” If we publish this many diet Read More

  • Lyme Disease: A Biological Weapon Gone Awry

    Prepare yourself for a genuinely frightening Health Tip. I bought Bitten: The Secret History of Lyme Disease and Biological Weapons, by investigative reporter Kris Newby, this past Saturday at 10 am and finished it at 8 pm. It reads more like a thriller than non-fiction and is chilling in its implications. First, some background: The tickborne infectious illness Lyme disease was first reported in 1975 Read More
