To improve the continuity and accuracy of patient information, and to best communicate within a collaborative medical team environment, Rutland Regional Medical Center has moved to an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system. With all of your medical and health information gathered into one record, and available to providers within the system, this means easier, faster access to vital information.
