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.

  • Infertility Issues? Start With The Guy

    I’ve lost track of the number of couples we treat at WholeHealth Chicago who are involved in one of the hormone injection/surgical procedure stops on the conveyor belt of infertility centers. Currently, it’s estimated that 15 to 20 percent of couples are struggling with infertility, half of them due to male factors. The infertility docs are nice enough and certainly well-meaning, but I note a Read More

  • Issues with Endocrinologists: Thyroid Approaches and Big Pharma

    My beefs with endocrinologists pretty much center on how they manage thyroid gland concerns, though they rarely win prizes for managing adrenal issues either. I don’t know any endocrinologists personally and rarely refer my patients to them. Occasionally, a patient with newly diagnosed hypothyroidism (low thyroid) will want to confirm the diagnosis with an endocrinologist. I suggest she prepare for a scolding if she’s taking Read More

  • Six Beefs With Rheumatologists

    If you find yourself in the waiting room of a rheumatologist, you’re likely there because your joints hurt and have been hurting, often for years. You’ve been getting by on aspirin or Advil for the pain, but with things worsening your primary care doctor suggests you should see a joint specialist, a rheumatologist. And because there’s a shortage of physicians in this specialty, your appointment Read More
