Sanford One Chart and Health Information Exchange
Sanford One Chart is the electronic medical record used by Sanford Health and various healthcare providers affiliated with Sanford Health. Sanford One Chart is connected to electronic health information exchanges. Health information exchanges are public and private organizations that help share medical information among unrelated healthcare providers within a community or larger region. This process allows electronic medical information to move quickly between the different information systems while maintaining the privacy, security and accuracy of the information being exchanged.
Health information exchange helps improve the quality of patient care, saves time, and reduces costs. In an emergency situation it allows a physician to retrieve a patient's records quickly, speed the delivery of care, and avoid unnecessary duplicate testing, medical errors and extra costs to the patient. Healthcare providers need access to as much useful information as possible while treating patients. Viewing your complete medical history—including all your lab results, medications, and immunizations—helps your provider make better decisions about your care.
You have the right to opt-out of electronic health information exchange. If you wish to do so, please ask for a Disclosure of Your Health Information by Sanford One Chart form at your next clinic or hospital visit.
Sanford Health, and all healthcare providers utilizing the Sanford One Chart electronic medical record, are participants in the following health information exchanges. Please visit these websites below for more information on each organization and their individual opt-out options.
