Wyoming Governor Matt Mead recognized Casper's Wyoming Medical Center on Thursday for making the move to streamline patient health records. He says it's the first hospital in the state to take advantage of a growing partnership with MyWy Health to improve patient care.
The Wyoming e-Health Partnership is a public/private partnership, a group that developed the secure exchange system of electronic health information for the eyes only of qualified health professionals. The system allows health care providers to more securely access a complete patient history as they provide treatment.
CEO of the Wyoming Medical Center, Vicki Diamond, says in a media release from the governor's office that their patients who are not from Casper - who often see multiple doctors - will not have to fill out duplicate paperwork or endure duplicate testing.
