The Boone County Health Center and medical clinics including the Elgin Veterans’ Medical Clinic rolled-out its new electronic health record system on Monday, March 17.
The transition to an electronic management system was a large undertaking involving thousands of hours of staff training, planning, building, installing, testing and more testing.
Patient billing was also effected and going through a transition period when Boone County Health Center and Medical Clinics converted to OneChart on March 17. For the time being, any dates of service prior to March 17 will be billed as they are now, in a guarantor or family format, out of the previous computer system. With OneChart, the statements will be patient-based. Each statement will be sent to the patient’s guarantor, but the guarantor will receive a separate statement for each member of the family that has accounts in a self-pay status. There is the potential for families to receive BCHC statements from both systems.
