  • A Message from Timothy J. Babineau, MD, President and CEO

  • Timothy Babineau, MDThis is a historic and exciting week for the Lifespan health system, our region and our patients. I’m pleased to announce that we implemented our new electronic health record system on March 29, 2015.

    Over the past few years, Lifespan has been working hard to redesign the way we deliver care across our system, at our hospitals, our clinics, our community practices and partners. The ultimate goal has been to transform ourselves from a hospital system to a health care system that puts the patient at the center of all that we do. Our mission statement sums it up neatly: Delivering health with care.

    The foundation of these efforts is our new electronic health record: LifeChart. It has taken two years of work to transform Lifespan’s entire information technology infrastructure, now re-built on the highly regarded Epic software platform.

    Whether you’re making a routine visit to your primary care physician or coming in for an unplanned surgery or emergency department treatment, your complete health record will be available to physicians and clinicians across the Lifespan system. You can also  participate in your own care and interact with your care providers through a component of the system called MyLifespan, which is a patient portal that enables patients to ask questions, request appointments and prescription refills, and review their health information, such as immunizations and test results.

    With the implementation of LifeChart, we are the only health care system in the state to have a single enterprise electronic health record that spans both inpatient and outpatient services—a distinction that affirms our commitment to meeting the health needs of our community.

    In the steadfast pursuit of excellence, I remain,

    Sincerely yours,
