Patient Keeper

img_0339There is a new tool available that will allow you quick and easy access to patient records from Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center – it is called “PatientKeeper 8” and is available now, for free, in the Apple App Store.  PatientKeeper is a leading provider of software with physicians’ workflow in mind and is currently used by over 60,000 doctors nationwide.

Should you want to see a live demo and get set up on the system we will assist you in linking your app to our HIS and LIS.  Please email or call 540-621-6062.

We do offer technical support in the field – although the app is very easy to use and quite intuitive.  While “PK8” only available for iPhone and iPad – we would be happy to offer other solutions if you cannot access this app. The link will show you video of how PatientKeeper works:


For the last several years, Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center has hosted a weight loss challenge for our community in the effort to be a good healthcare partner. January 12th of this year, we had hundreds of people come to do their official “weigh-in” and visit with many fitness related vendors.  It is a 16-week journey where contestants receive a weekly motivational email and as often as we can, we attach a message from our medical providers that offers insight on their profession as it pertains to obesity.   Our contestants look forward to these emails each week plus it is a great way to connect our medical community to potential future patients.  In addition to the emails, we also provide onsite lectures by a Registered Dietician, healthy food demonstrations and using proper footwear to name a few.

During her tenure with HCA, Trula has held numerous leadership positions with the behavioral health arena as well as acute care, coming to Chippenham & Johnston-Willis in 1995.

Trula is a member of the American Organization of Nurse Executives and the American/Virginia Nurses’ Association. She has been involved in several community boards including Crisis Link Suicide Prevention, Northern Virginia Workforce Development Board, Tri-City CASA, and Greater Richmond Children’s Health Involving Parents. Trula continues to serve on the Virginia Commonwealth University/Medical College of Virginia Alumni Board of Trustees and is a representative for the Nursing Division.

Trula has also been a member of The Joint Commission Professional/Technical Advisory Committee representing the American Hospital Association as well as Behavioral Health Advisory Council. She has held an appointment as Adjunct Faculty at VCU School of Nursing.

Trula was appointed in July 2011 to the Virginia Board of Nursing for a four-year term by Governor Robert F. McDonnell and reappointed by Governor Terry McAuliffe for a second term, 2015-2019. She has served as an officer of the Board in the capacity of Secretary. In 2014 she was appointed by Governor McAuliffe to represent the Board of Nursing on the Advisory Board of the Department of Health Professions. Trula is a member of the Clinical Advisory Board, John Tyler Community College.
