University of Michigan student health service going paperless

By Kellie Woodhouse

The University of Michigan health service is going paperless.


According to a Michigan Daily article, University Health Service —a health care clinic located on U-M's central campus— recently began phasing in an electronic system to record patient information.

The new system went live about a month ago and is expected to be fully integrated in a year. It is is part of an effort to remedy current communication problems with the university hospital, the article said.

Paperless? "phasing in an electronic system to record patient information." I guess the Hospital and the Football team are a lot a like because they both think that they are better than they are!

This is not the hospital. It is unfortunately not associated with the hospital in any way, including no sharing of patient records.
