Cleveland Clinic and other Ohio hospitals began process of sharing Electronic Medical Records

During her first appointment with a new gynecologist this summer, Sue Valko could not recall details of her June 2000 hysterectomy, an important part of her medical history.

Dr. Christine Slotta turned to her computer and soon had Valko's background at her fingertips.

"To have her pull up all the information, it was fantastic," said Valko, 60, of Oakwood Village.
