We are pleased to announce the launch of the Sentara eCare Health Network® in Northern Virginia. This clinical system uses innovative technology to link patient medical information between Sentara hospitals, physician practices, and other healthcare sites over a protected network, enabling the secure sharing of patient information.

With real-time documentation of your healthcare status and needs, authorized physicians and clini­cians can get the information they need to understand your current health condition and treatment plan. That way they can better collaborate to bring you the safest and best quality care possible.

Electronic documentation also allows your historical medical record to be accessible and reviewable by all authorized members of your healthcare team at any time and from anywhere, helping make your future healthcare encounters even more efficient and effective.

Important features of Sentara eCare®

Electronic Medical Record
An Electronic Medical Record (EMR) replaces your paper medical chart with a secure, digital record. This electronic record is accessible to authorized clinicians via the secure Sentara eCare Health Network®.

Dedication to Patient Security and Privacy
Sentara eCare® was carefully developed with technology that guarantees a secure system. Only doctors, other healthcare providers and hospitals who are involved in your care have access to your electronic medical record. While the system ensures  your privacy, it also enables your entire medical team to view your medical history electronically, resulting in better collaboration and better care.

Enhanced Patient Safety 
In 2005, when the U.S. government called for each patient to have an electronic medical record (EMR) within the next 10 years,  Sentara listened. With Sentara eCare Health Network®, we’re leading a national trend toward better patient safety and reduced medical errors. The new system will also provide a wide range of other benefits, including improved overall efficiency and easier access for patients to their own records.

Sentara eCare® in the Hospital Setting
Should you need inpatient care at Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center, some changes will be evident during your stay. Computer terminals will be within patient rooms or will be rolled into and out of your room as our clinical team monitors and documents your health information.

A scanner will be used to swipe your arm band as part of our improved positive patient identification process. This added safety check helps to ensure the right patient is being treated at the right time in the right way.
