About Sentara eCare®  and Sentara MyChart
The implementation of Sentara eCare®, the region’s most comprehensive electronic health record system, has provided a platform for using technology to improve care. All seven Sentara hospitals in Hampton Roads and most Sentara Medical Group physician offices operate on Sentara eCare®.

The system has brought dramatic clinical improvements in hospital care, including a reduction in average length of stay for patients, a reduction in hospital readmission rates, shortened length of time from admission to bed assignments, decreased times from medication orders to administration, and prevented more than 100,000 potential medication errors across its hospitals operating on the Sentara eCare® platform.

As one part of the larger Sentara eCare Health Network®, Sentara MyChart helps patients connect with physicians and their staff, enabling even faster diagnosis and quality treatment. Sentara MyChart offers the convenience and flexibility of anytime access to a patient’s medical record and tools to manage care. Over 50,000 area residents are currently engaged through the Sentara MyChart patient portal.
