Patient Information

Kirchner Women’s Clinic utilizes an electronic medical record system that allows us to access medical records quickly and securely from any location we may be working. This system allows interaction with our hospital, laboratories and radiology groups in order to efficiently obtain and review the results of the tests we have ordered. It also allows us to directly place prescriptions in the pharmacy, increasing the efficiency and safety of the prescribing process.
