New Technology for Safety and Efficiency

The new Metro Health Hospital has enhanced safety features, a highly sophisticated computer network and designs that improve efficiency and patient care.

One of the key technological advances at the new facility is our state-of-the-art information technology system-the most advanced of any health care system in our region. At the center of this is MetroConnect, our new electronic medical record (EMR) system. MetroConnect is a powerful tool that provides greater access to information for both patients and physicians. Metro Health care providers now have instant, secure access to medical records and real-time test results. Patients can email their doctor, schedule appointments, renew prescriptions and more – all from the convenience of their own computer.
