The electronic medical records at MaineHealth are safe, secure and convenient. Stored in digital format, health care records can be shared by all your providers, making it easy to track your medicines and your vital signs. Patients also can request copies of their medical records. Having electronic medical records decreases the chance of mistakes made when paper records are mailed between providers. We also offer e-prescribing. And, electronic alerts help your providers keep track of dates for important health care screenings and other types of preventive care for patients.
