Advancing Superior Health Care

BEACON is the name of BayCare's inpatient Electronic Medical Record (EMR), which is changing how we document and record patient information to go from mostly paper files to a new computer system. Every hospital in BayCare now documents in BEACON, providing the entire health team with a real-time record of the patient's care. We appreciate your patience as we work through this new technology.

Physicians can access BEACON by going to BayCare's Physicians' Portal at Dr. BayCare.
