On Monday May 14th, Northern Inyo Hospital will transition to a new computer system in order to improve patient care and satisfy the electronic health record stipulations of the HITECH Act passed in 2010.
To assure accuracy and patient safety during this transition, it may take additional time to verify patient information. Patients should continue to bring photo IDs and insurance cards, as well a complete list of medications with them to the hospital. Once patient information is in the new system, future registration and other such documentation should be much faster and efficient.
Northern Inyo Hospital is a small 25-bed critical access not-for-profit hospital in scenic Bishop, California. The only hospital for 150 miles that is accredited by The Joint Commission, Northern Inyo Hospital has been providing high quality healthcare in the Eastern Sierra since 1946.
