Coastal Medical switches to Lifespan’s electronic health record

PROVIDENCE – Coastal Medical, an entity of Lifespan Corp., announced it has transitioned to Lifespan’s electronic health record, LifeChart, and patient portal, MyLifespan, using Epic software.

The new platform will help patients with the ability to view health records for Lifespan primary care locations, hospitals, specialists, laboratories and imaging in one patient portal; streamlined portal alerts for Lifespan test results; additional functions such as online scheduling, appointment waitlists and video visits for some kinds of appointments; and a faster check-in process that allows patients to update information before their visit.

“Coastal Medical’s adoption of Lifespan’s EHR is cause for much excitement because it allows for one patient record to be shared by all Lifespan entities,” said Ed McGookin, president of Coastal Medical. “This change will help to improve continuity of care, increase patient safety and enhance operational efficiencies – a win-win situation for both our patients and our employees.”
