Effective April 1, 2016 at 7:00AM, the Health Information Management Department will no longer routinely fax all transcribed dictated documents to physician offices. Lab and Radiology results will still be faxed to your office. All transcribed reports are available for your office staff on the physician portal.
In order to ensure capture of current diagnoses they must be documented within the progress notes AND the discharge summary. Diagnoses pertinent to the current visit must be documented in progress notes and carried through to the discharge summary. Including all diagnoses preceded by the words “ possible, probable, resolved, resolving, suspected, improved, improving, likely”.
Beginning 1/19/15, HIM at both Woodstock and McHenry Hospitals will be relocating to South Street: First Floor (Behind double doors/main desk) 527 W. South St Woodstock, IL 60098
With that being said, there will be no Medical Record Services at either campus. Records will be transported to the new location for scanning/completion. Patients requesting medical records will need to present at South Street for copies of their Medical Record.
Phone numbers along with other information will be released shortly.
For any questions or concerns, please contact Sarah Sipunu.
