Allina's “One Patient, One Electronic Medical Record” philosophy

[Healthcare IT News, January 01, 0001] Allina’s health IT initiatives share a common goal: To have one IT system that supports its patients, providers and research activities, and provides a seamless integrated approach toward delivering a positive patient and provider experience, said Stephanie Luthi-Terry, director of the e-HIM division of Allina’s Health Information Management department.

Its “One Patient, One Record” philosophy has been core to the inception of Allina’s EMR. “It has always served as the foundational vision for our EMR, so we do not have multiple, disparate, orphan systems that don’t talk to each other,” she said.
