Advanced technology links all Marshfield Clinic centers and provides physicians with state-of-the-art tools. These tools include:
Electronic medical records
Electronic medical records let physicians access patients' medical records from anywhere in the system. The Clinic has integrated other computer-based technologies into the electronic medical record for real-time access to information and seamless patient care.
Our Telehealth network is one of the most advanced programs of its kind. This interactive teleconferencing system brings specialty health care services to remote areas of Wisconsin. Patients, nurses and doctors talk as if they are in the same room. Specially designed medical peripherals, operated by nurse clinicians, connect with monitors to provide clear images and re-create the in-person exam.
Wireless point of care
Clinic physicians use tablet PCs and other devices to make appropriate care decisions based on the information from the electronic medical record.
Our digital system has all but eliminated the need for film in X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, ultrasounds and mammograms. Digital images are available within minutes for interpretation. Physicians can view the images in the patient's online record, which saves time and reduces costs.
