TennCare is now working with Shared Health to make using the current health care system easier, more useful, and more informative.
On October 1, 2006, TennCare will keep your health facts in a statewide electronic health record.
What's an electronic health record?
It's your health facts including your health history that are kept in a computer. We can use it to send your health facts right to your doctors' office computers.
The electronic health record we'll use is called the Clinical Health RecordT (CHR) by Shared Health.
Delivering better care and better business begins with providing better information. The CHR will do just that - as a patient-centered, online health record accessible at the point of care to ensure every patient is treated more effectively and more efficiently.
We have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions (pdf, 50kb) which will also guide you through this benefit.
