Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital in Lebanon, N.H., is pleased to announce the engagement of Greenway Medical Technologies of Carrollton, Ga. to begin developing an electronic data management system that will establish Electronic Health Records for clinic patients. The project, estimated to cost over $1 million, will kick off early in May.
“Electronic Health Records have many benefits; they will allow us to improve efficiency and better serve our patients, helping us coordinate data sharing between providers on our campus and offices statewide,” says Lorraine Nichols, Director of Information Services.
Dr. Sheila Feyrer, Medical Director of Informatics, explains: “Our goal is to make it easier to update and access patient information across all areas of their care. We’ll be better able to track individual pieces of information such as laboratory reports and complete medication lists, which will give us a much more efficient and accurate set of records.”
The system will be funded in part by a $720,000 bequest from the estate of the late Mary T. Burke, a long-time Auxiliary member and friend of the hospital who served as a trustee, volunteer, and incorporator.

Beginning in May, Nina McCampbell, M.D. will begin acupuncture treatments for current patients at the Robert A. Mesropian Center for Community Care (RAMCCC), a department of Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital, the hospital’s primary care clinic.
Dr. McCampbell, a specialist in Family Medicine at the clinic, served a fellowship in Holistic, Integrative and Pluralistic Medicine at the Greater Lawrence Family Health Center in Lawrence, Ma, which included 300 hours of acupuncture training at Harvard Medical School. She is a member of the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Family Physicians. Acupuncture is a practice that involves inserting tiny needles into various points on the body to relieve pain or for therapeutic purposes for conditions such as arthritis, migraines, and stress related conditions. Acupuncture treatment is rooted in Chinese medical theory and practice.
The RAMCCC offers a comprehensive range of primary care services for the whole family. Their team of physicians and nurse practitioners are accepting new patients in Family Practice, Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. The RAMCCC is located at 123 Mascoma Street in Lebanon; (603) 448-3122.
