"The addition of WellStar to the GaHIN Network is beneficial for both patients and their providers," said Pam Matthews, Executive Operating Officer of GaHIN.
"WellStar patients' medical information is easily accessible by other providers which is beneficial when patients are vacationing, traveling across the state, or engaging specialty providers for consultations. Now, a WellStar provider will be able to access past medical history of a new patient through GaHIN. Likewise, a patient's WellStar visit information will be accessible by other providers. Easy access of patient information across providers, regardless of geographic location, facilitates high quality patient care and eliminates unnecessary and duplicate testing. This easy access to comprehensive information is the goal of interoperability."
WellStar has more than 20,000 employees and 2,500 medical staff members, as well as more than 1,000 physicians and advanced practice professionals in the WellStar Medical Group.
We welcome WellStar to the GaHIN Community!
