Evident - New Electronic Health Record System

On May 1st, Cozad Community Health System went live with a new electronic health record (EHR) system. The Cozad Community Health System Information Technology Team has been working hard with employees on the new EHR system that is being used throughout the Cozad Community Hospital and Cozad Community Medical Clinic. Evident, the name of the EHR system, has been training the employees of the Cozad Community Health System since January 15th.  The Evident Team has remained onsite for these first three weeks of May to help employees get acclimated to the system. We applaud the dedication and teamwork that's been happening throughout our entire Health System with launching a new system.

We appreciate the patience as our entire staff becomes proficient with the new EHR system. Please remember to bring your current insurance card/cards and driver's license to scan into the new system when checking in for a medical visit at any of the Cozad Community Health System locations.
