Electronic medical records are already a reality in the hospital and the emergency room at Mille Lacs Health System, and Centricity is the program that will launch the clinic side of electronic medical records.

Amy Ninham, MLHS clinical analyst, says, “The IT team, providers and clinic staff, are currently working on the interface between the hospital electronic medical record and Centricity. Eventually both systems will have interoperability and the end result for the patient will be a closed loop of care.”
