HERON Sunset includes Clincial Service Department

HERON Sunset includes Clinical Service Department information, which allows you to limit your search to a specific clinic. For example, searches can be limited to include only patients seen at Mid-America Cardiology (MAC). Clinical Service Department data is from the electronic medical record, O2, while the data in the Clinical Services folder is derived from the billing system, IDX.
