River's Edge Hospital is asking the St. Peter, Minn., City Council to approve the purchase of a $1.4 million system for electronic medical records to comply with federal law and avoid losing Medicare reimbursements. The hospital estimates the total cost of implementation will reach $2.7 million because it needs to upgrade computers and the Internet network, as well as purchase platforms for financial management and human resources.
