Hawthorne Vision Center, 4704 SE Hawthorne, 503.235.6639, has moved their clinic records to “the cloud”. They can share crucial health information with other medical providers and help reduce healthcare spending by avoiding duplicate testing. They will have a secure patient portal where patients can schedule appointments and view their own eyecare records. They can email a copy of glasses prescription and send medication prescriptions to the pharmacy electronically, so with luck, the medication could be waiting for you to pick it up.

 

RevolutionEHR, is an eyecare-specific electronic medical records company with software certified to meet or exceed the government standards for security.  Patients will appreciate the improved communication and benefits that come with using secure electronic medical records. They know the environment will appreciate less paper use as well.

 

The draft city-wide Comprehensive Plan Map will be available near October 1 with a new Map Application that will allow people to zero in on any part of the city to access background information, current issues, possible changes and to post a comment or ask a question. There will also be a Companion Guide.
