Coordinated Health and Lehigh Valley Health Network Now Share Patient Records Through Epic

BY HANNAH ROPP

Coordinated Health, part of Lehigh Valley Health Network, is transitioning all patient records at most of its facilities to Epic electronic health records (EHR system) Sept. 1. Patient care will now be even more integrated across the health network, giving all LVHN and Coordinated Health providers access to patient records and standardizing patient care.

“This transition will improve the flow of patient information across our health network and remove barriers that prevent important communication from happening. Beginning today, our entire health network can utilize one chart for each patient,” says Amy Nyberg, President, Coordinated Health.

“We are truly excited to be making the switch to Epic. This switch will allow for comprehensive and coordinated care for all of our patients,” says Wayne Luchetti, MD, Chief of Surgery, Coordinated Health.

  • Coordinated Health locations switching to Epic are:

  • 1503 N. Cedar Crest Blvd., Allentown

  • 1621 N. Cedar Crest Blvd., Allentown

  • 1405 N. Cedar Crest Blvd., Allentown

  • 2030 Highland Ave., Bethlehem

  • 2300 Highland Ave., Bethlehem

  • 2310 Highland Ave., Bethlehem

In addition, the transition to Epic will allow Coordinated Health patients to access their health information through MyLVHN, the secure patient portal that connects patients with their medical records or the record of someone they care for, such as a child or relative. Harry Schmaltz, MD, orthopedic surgeon with Coordinated Health Scranton Orthopedics, says the transition to Epic will provide patients in the Scranton region with greater access. “Patients will benefit from MyLVHN, giving them the ability to easily connect with their provider and health information,” says Schmaltz.

With MyLVHN patients can:

  • Review their health summary

  • Schedule an appointment or video visit

  • Access virtual care like video visit or E-Visit

  • Check in for appointments from a smartphone

  • Request prescription refills

  • Pay or review bills

  • Send and receive non-urgent messages from their health care provider

Patients can create a MyLVHN account during a visit with their provider or sign up online at MyLVHN.org or through the free MyLVHN app available on Apple App Store or GooglePlay. For technical questions about MyLVHN, patients can call 844-4MY-LVHN (844-469-5846).
