Technology

Thanks to the generosity of the Beazley Foundation, Chesapeake Care became the first clinic of its kind in Virginia to adopt an electronic medical records (EMR) system. In 2010 Chesapeake Care added electronic dental records. We provide hands-on training to volunteers and staff on the use of these technologies. Additionally, Chesapeake Care shares expertise with other similar clinics implementing electronic medical and dental records at their sites.

Future Plans

Chesapeake Care is committed to providing health safety net services to our community during this time of rapid change precipitated by health care reform. Our immediate plans include a renovation of our medical facilities.
