Alice Peck Day moves to new electronic medical record system

Friday, May 10, 2019

LEBANON — Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital, an affiliate of Dartmouth-Hitchcock, is moving to the same electronic health record system used by several other organizations within the D-H system.

The new system, known as eD-H, is software licensed from the health information technology company Epic Systems, and shared by Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, the Dartmouth-Hitchcock practices in southern New Hampshire and Cheshire Medical Center in Keene, N.H., according to a Thursday news release from APD.

“This transition to eD-H provides the foundation for APD’s future,” APD CEO Sue Mooney said in the release. “It will not only improve the care of our patients, but allow APD to work with (Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health) to identify new opportunities to provide services that our patients and the community desire.”

It will allow patients to access their health records on the myD-H patient portal, which can be accessed on the web or through a mobile app. From there patients will be able to communicate with their health care providers, access appointment reminders, request appointments and prescription renewals; view account balances and make online credit card payments; and read lab and test results.

The system switch is scheduled to take place at 7 p.m. on Saturday.
