Electronic Medical Records

One Patient, One Chart

Each Virtua Medical Group patient has a single electronic patient chart, viewable by all of your Virtua doctors and care providers.

What does it mean for you?


A complete picture means better quality of care 
While your doctor is talking to you during an exam or on the phone, she has every detail of your medical history in front of her. That includes notes from other physician visits, radiology, labs, and EKGs. Her evaluation and decision-making is enhanced, right on the spot.

Better sharing of information is more efficient
Your doctor won’t have to re-order a test that has been recently completed—he can see everything ordered by any other Virtua physician, along with the results.

More efficiency means lower costs and more convenience
Less duplication of tests and office visits means fewer co-pays and less mileage to labs and doctor’s offices.
