LEXINGTON Lexington Clinic now uses a new electronic health record (EHR) in partnership with athenahealth, a leading provider of network-enabled services and mobile applications for healthcare providers nationwide.
“We are excited to implement our new EHR throughout all Lexington Clinic locations and associate practices,” said Andrew H. Henderson, MD, Lexington Clinic CEO. “The advanced capabilities of the new system offer new online capabilities to patients and allow our providers to continue to deliver the best care possible.”
The athenaOne system serves Lexington Clinic’s EHR, revenue cycle management, and patient communication needs with streamlined, easy on-boarding designed to scale and grow with the organization. The athenaClinicals quality management tool is designed to surface preventive care measures as well as best practices for care management.
The new system bridges Lexington Clinic’s patient communication, billing system, and EHR, which allows physicians and staff a more streamlined and effective way to manage patient access, care, and information. This single system includes every part of a patient’s care, where before it could take three to four systems just to check a patient in.
Additionally, the new EHR utilizes a cloud-based system, which allows access to a single, shared network. This single, shared network allows physicians and clinical staff at Lexington Clinic to see the same patient data and the same clinical workflow. It provides an effective, user-friendly means to complete documentation quickly, allowing physicians and providers to spend less time documenting, and more time treating patients
With the implementation of athenaOne Lexington Clinic launched a new, enhanced patient portal. The integrated and robust portal functionality allows staff and patients to communicate together more effectively and efficiently, and gives patients access to their healthcare from anywhere, at anytime. Through the portal, patients will have access to personal health information such as test results, visit summaries, secure messaging with a Lexington Clinic provider, and prescriptions (including the ability to request refills online).
Features of the patient portal allow users to:
Check in online
Pay co-pays online
Exchange secure messages with provider
Review and pay billing statements
Research health topics
Review or update personal health information
Receive visit summaries
Receive test results
Request prescription refills
