Electronic Medical Records

Using Electronic Medical Records to improve patient safety and experience At the North Shore-LIJ Cancer Institute Department of Radiation, Electronic Medical Records (EMR) give the treatment team seamless and protected access to treatment plans and medical information. By using EMR, the team is able to review your case each morning during Smart Rounds (daily review of each patient and their progress), and the record is also used to set up the treatment machines. All of this ensures you are getting the safest and most personalized care to treat your cancer. Other programs from around the country have come to North Shore-LIJ to learn how our EMR works. Watch this video and learn more about the positive impacts our EMR has on a patient’s treatment experience.
