MCHCS Transitions to Cutting Edge Electronic Health Records System

Madison County Health Care System will transition to a new Electronic Health Records system on September 24, 2018. The market-leading new system will enhance internal communication between care teams and provide an upgraded patient portal. Providers in different departments and facilities within MCHCS will have quicker and more comprehensive access to a patient’s medical records, ultimately enabling them to provide even better care. The upgraded patient portal will make requesting appointments, viewing test results, and paying your bill faster and easier for patients.

Madison County Health Care System (MCHCS) has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Des Moines Register. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“We’re thrilled and honored to receive this award,” said MCHCS CEO Marcia Hendricks, RN, MHA, FACHE. “We believe in taking care of our employees and support them while they do the important work of caring for our patients. We appreciate all the feedback we’ve received and plan to build on it to continue to improve for the future.”

Each employee was invited to leave anonymous feedback throughout the survey to further explain the scores they gave for each section. Many cited excellent relationships with their managers and peers, a positive atmosphere, and opportunity to advance their career as reasons for their high scores. They also noted that the opportunity to help patients and make their community stronger gives them a sense of purpose that keeps them motivated.
