A digital health milestone: Heart & lung sounds become part of electronic health records for the first-time

Three companies have joined forces to launch this groundbreaking effort: Direct Urgent Care, Eko, and drchrono. Using a quick three step process, clinicians can now seamlessly incorporate heart and lung sounds into patient health records.

Direct Urgent Care, a Berkeley-based urgent care provider with 30,000 patients, enables providers to record important heart and lung sounds using the Eko Core Digital Stethoscope

The information is then uploaded to the drchrono EHR, an online medical platform with comprehensive EHR capabilities, to enable clinicians to seamlessly incorporate heart and lung sounds alongside patient health records.
