Electronic Health Record Hepatitis Integration Project

There are hundreds of Electronic Health Records in use in NYC. Most current Electronic Health Record products do not include a comprehensive Hepatitis A, B or C identification, care and treatment module. There is no standard Hepatitis A, B or C identifcation, care and treatment modules accross systems. Some organizations have built their own Hepatitis modules in-house.

The health care community as a whole would benefit from standard comprehensive optomized Hepatitis A, B & C identifaction, care & treatement module built into the basic Electronic Heath Record Systems.
