Employee Occupational Health Records

    Hi,

     

    I'm curious to hear how others are managing employee occupational health records (e.g., Flu vaccinations, TB tests, etc).   Do you create medical charts in your EHR or do you use a separate system?  If you use a separate system, what do you use?

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Chris

    We don't include them in our EHR. We have discussed having a separate database within our current system, but have not yet set that up. Currently our employee occupational health records are on paper.

    When I was at a healthcare system, we did not include them in our EMR.  These records are consider employment records and should be kept separate. I think we used Systoc but I'm not positive about that.
