Healthcare providers across the country are beginning to think about the transition from an archive of paper files to an electronic health record (EHR). At HCA, that transition has already begun. We call it hCare.
hCare will revolutionize the accessibility of critical information throughout HCA while improving quality, enhancing regulatory compliance, connecting physicians and facilities across our healthcare system, and ultimately ensuring that the communities we serve receive the best possible care.
In taking hCare to more than 250 affiliate hospitals and outpatient centers, we’re embarking on the nation’s largest EHR rollout. If you’re a professional or clinician with experience in healthcare IT or health informatics, don’t miss this exciting opportunity to join hCare: HCA’s Electronic Health Record.
