We are pleased to inform you that our practice, Carient Heart & Vascular is joining Inova Health System. Inova has been ranked by US News and World Reports as the #1 provider of healthcare in Northern VA and Washington, DC area. They are recognized as a global leader in developing and applying personalized health to create higher quality and more efficient care. Inova is also home to the nationally and internationally recognized Inova Heart and Vascular Institute. While there will be some changes in joining Inova Health Systems most things will stay the same such as, our physicians, staff, phone numbers and most office locations. Our Haymarket location has moved—find more detail in the included FAQ. This will be a smooth transition without interruptions to the practice and will definitely not affect your care.
Some important benefits of being an Inova Medical Group patient are:
- EpicCare electronic medical record and MyChart patient portal. This provides online access to view your electronic medical record, communicate directly with your care team, request prescription refills (for some medications), and increased coordination of care.
- Translation services for patients requiring language assistance via the Inova Language Line with translation in more than 150 languages.
We will continue to provide you with access and efficient care coordination. Please note that there will be new policies and patient care improvements to take place during this transition time. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding while we implement changes and embark upon this new phase. To ensure your next visit with us runs smoothly, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment to complete the following forms which only need to be completed once a year.
