Beacon Electronic Health Record

Pardon us while we transition to BEACON, Midland Health’s new electronic health record (EHR) provided through Cerner. This new form of communication will improve patient access to health records and engagement in personal wellness.

In addition to providing cutting edge technology, this transition to a fuller, more robust EHR system gives providers a comprehensive view of the patient, allowing for better coordination of care through the sharing of information more efficiently across disciplines, specialties, hospitals and even pharmacies. Providers are now able to exchange accurate, up-to-date patient data, which leads to efficient diagnosis and reduces medical errors. Moreover, the robust reporting and analytic capabilities of Beacon offer a greater level of patient care by putting providers in front of health trends and potential patient health risks.

Improving and cultivating patient and provider communication and interaction is critical. Beacon provides patients better access to their own health information and records through the new HealtheLife patient portal. Patients are now able to communicate directly with their care team about past and upcoming visits, medication refills and other health questions.

BEACON is transforming the way Midland Health provides healthcare to West Texas. Its streamlined, integrated system ensures a higher quality of care for all patients. Please be patient with us during this transition.
