PA Coat of Arms

Thanks to the implementation the electronic health record (E.H.R.) project, the DOC is no longer creating paper medical charts for newly-received inmates or Parole Violators.   New receptions and PVs will be processed using the E.H.R. with any hardcopy documentation not captured into the system being scanned and maintained among forms, diagnostics, progress notes, and all other healthcare information.   Additionally, healthcare information for current inmates is being captured and stored in the E.H.R. with the historical paper chart being referenced on an as-needed basis.
