Quality & Performance

Coastal is dedicated to enhancing patient care by continued participation in all Patient Quality Reporting Initiatives, e-prescribe, and the Medicare Meaningful Use Program.

Meaningful Use encourages practices and their hospitals to securely and electronically communicate in order to enhance total patient care. We encourage our patients to be an integral part of their own healthcare by providing access to medical records through our secure patient portal. These records can be kept or transmitted to other healthcare professionals or caregivers. Our goal is to avoid duplication of costly testing, help decrease drug interactions, and keep you and your entire care team up to date on what’s happening in all areas of your healthcare.
