Implementing our EMR was just the beginning. Continuous optimization efforts allow us to leverage the system to transform care delivery and achieve excellent patient outcomes.

We look forward to utilizing the EMR to its fullest potential as we continue on our digital journey to innovative patient care," said HSS senior vice president and chief information officer Jamie Nelson.
