The Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patient (CRISP) is the designated Health Information Exchange (HIE) in Maryland, several other states and the District of Columbia. An HIE is a way of instantly sharing health information among doctors’ offices, hospitals, labs, radiology centers, and other healthcare organizations. CRISP allows your providers and organizations coordinating your care to view your medical history. For example, providers can review recent lab results or see information about your recent hospital encounters. This timely sharing of information allows organizations to provide safer, more timely, efficient patient-centered care. CRISP’s priority is to keep all of your health information secure.
Dr. Tucker has over 30 years experience with electronic medical records (EMR). He applied this experience to the evaluation of electronic records during the initial planning of EMR systems for Advanced Menstrual Care Center. After a thorough and careful review of many different systems, Dr. Tucker selected the PRAXIS electronic medical record system.
After office or tele-visits, doctors, nurses and other health care providers write notes that summarize important information about you. These notes become a part of your medical record. And when a note is shared with you, it becomes an "open note."
It may include: A summary of what you told the doctor or nurse, also called a “history.” The provider’s findings from a physical exam. Examples might include blood pressure and weight, how your lungs or heart sound, a description of a growth on your skin, or observations about your mood. Your provider’s thoughts about results of your lab tests, x-rays, scans, biopsies, or other studies.
Summary thoughts about any medical conditions or symptoms, also called “assessment” or “impressions.” Recommendations made during the visit, often called the “treatment plan,” or “plan of care.” The notes might include tests, follow up appointments, referrals, exercises, or changes in your diet.
How notes look depends on many things: who writes the note, the kind of visit, where you get care, etc. Sometimes the notes are short. Others include a complete description of the visit and may also include additional details about your health, such as past problems or test results. And due to various rules and regulations, some may include information that doesn’t seem very relevant.
Open notes give you the opportunity to review the details of your visit at any time. Studies now show that reading open notes can help people manage their health care in a way that makes them feel more confident, prepared, and in control.
