Next week Peds First is transitioning to a new EMR (electronic medical record) program. For the next several weeks, we have increased the time we allot for visits with the expectation that we will be taking longer to accomplish tasks while we get used to the new software. The patient portal that is currently posted will no longer be updated after June 3rd. A new patient portal linked to the new EMR should be running within the next week or so. I am sure there will be kinks with it when it goes live (just like this website!), but we will work to iron them out as quickly as possible. Your advising us as to problems you are facing will help us in accomplishing this, so please let us know if you find issues when it goes live. We apologize in advance for some of the extra paperwork when you make your first visit after the transition. We have spent countless hours getting the old and the new EMR to “talk” to each other to transition all information over. That being said, we will be confirming with all patients on their first visit after June 3rd their medical history, family history, medications and allergies to ensure we can continue to provide proper care for your children. Thank you in advance for your patience during the transition. We will do our best to make it as smooth as possible for all.
