ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS
Soho Pediatric Group is transitioning to an electronic medical record beginning January, 2012. Current patients will have their existing paper records scanned into the new system. We will soon have a patient portal to communicate with parents, including access to patient immunization records, growth charts, and lab results. There are now additional educational materials on this web site, including downloadable copies of our well visit handouts. We look forward to improving our ability to provide your family with excellent health care and appreciate your input on how to improve how we communicate with patients and parents.
