Electronic Medical Records Initiation

ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS are coming to the Williamson County Health Department clinics!



Local health department clinics across the region will begin transitioning to a "electronic" record keeping system in September 2018. While we undergo the transition there will be fewer appointments scheduled and longer wait times to see a provider. Patients who see providers at the Franklin or Fairview clinic for primary care and who take daily, long-term maintenance medications for conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, arthritis, COPD, etc. are
STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to keep regularly scheduled appointments in the coming months to ensure they maintain adequate quantities of their necessary medications through the transitional period when they may not be able to get an appointment quickly.

Breastfeeding room 2
The Franklin Clinic's Breastfeeding Quiet Space recently underwent a major facelift. The room had new furniture and mild lighting added to make the space more inviting and comfortable for our patients and clients who choose to breastfeed while in clinic. 

Every mother deserves a clean, comfortable and relaxing space to provide for their infants. The Williamson County Health Department is proud to be able to provide this room as a resource.
