CHELSEA, MI – Chelsea Community Hospital is pleased to announce an upgrade in its medical records, scheduling, and registration systems.
“Genesis,” Trinity Health’s electronic medical record system, will be fully implemented at CCH on July 16, 2011. “Months of training and preparation have gone into this important project, and the staff is ready to take this important step,” says Kathy Brubaker, Executive Vice-President for Patient Care and the CCH executive leading this project.
Genesis consists of a group of sophisticated systems that will revolutionize the way CCH provides care. It will eliminate the use of paper medical records, and will help to provide the safest and highest quality care possible. Through this transition, CCH has been fortunate to have strong support from Saint Joseph Mercy Health System staff, who have been very involved and critically important to the success of this project.
“We are committed to providing exceptional care to our patients, and are excited to take this next step of implementing our electronic medical record,” says Kathleen Griffiths, President and CEO of CCH. “Our patients and their families are our priority, and we are pleased to be using cutting edge technology that will enhance the care we provide. Genesis ties in nicely with the building of our new facility, as both projects are important ways that we are growing to meet the needs of the communities we serve.”

“Most of the changes that occur with Genesis will not be seen by the patients; they will receive the same high-quality care they have come to expect from us,” Brubaker added. “Having an electronic medical record will enable us to continue to provide excellent, patient-centered care, backed by a state-of-the-art system.”
