Appointment Wait Times
To give our staff time to get up to speed with the new EMR, providers will see fewer patients daily, which may increase appointment wait time for several months.
Patients may see overlapping billing notices because services provided on or before April 10, 2023, will be billed through our old EMR, and services provided on or after April 11, 2023, will be billed through our new EMR.
For any billing questions, please call our billing office at 435-719-3536.
All patients will need to create a patient portal account in the new EMR to access information for services provided on or after April 11, 2023.

To view information for services provided on or before April 10, 2023, please log into MyCareCorner, the patient portal for our old EMR.
Note that providers will have access to all patient records regardless of when services were provided.
Why is the ability to share a patient’s medical record important?
A shared system means that the health information a doctor, pharmacy, or lab enters into a patient’s medical record at one facility can be accessed by providers and staff at other facilities when they need it.
