UNC Health Care will create a community of connected care, allowing doctors to more easily refer patients inside the healthcare system and making it easier for patients to get appointments. This will also ensure medical staff have the most up-to-date and accurate information on each patient. For physicians, it will empower them with trusted information at the point of care, for example, care providers will see all medications each patient is currently taking along with historical exams and test results from the doctors they previously visited.
