Public Health STD Clinic at Harborview Medical Center
We are changing to electronic health records
On Thursday, April 30, 2015, the STD Clinic began using electronic health records. The new electronic system is reliable and secure. The system will:
- Keep your health records safe and private
- Make it easy to make an appointment
- Let your providers coordinate your care
During the month of May, the clinic may not have as many walk-in slots or appointments available as staff continue to learn the new system. Your wait at the clinic might take longer than usual. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your patience and understanding as clinic staff learn to use the new electronic health record system.
