Health Ministry Electronic Documentation System
The Pittsburgh Mercy Parish Nurse & Health Ministry Program has developed an Electronic Documentation System. Created especially for – and with input from – faith community nurses and health ministers. The system is specifically designed for those interested in documenting their health ministry activities and creating outcomes data and reports.

Pittsburgh Mercy announces a timely update to our Health Ministry Documentation System.
Since assessment for COVID-19 is being done prior to entering the faith community, we enhanced our database to allow for easy documentation of temperature and added check-boxes for symptoms and other pertinent information.
The COVID-19 screen is similar to the Blood Pressure screening form, allowing easy data entry. We have added Reports to allow you to share the results with others, as needed.
To view a brief video demo of this new feature, click on this link: https://youtube.com/watch?v=e1u5WzlXWmM
To update your system to include COVID-19 screening, a fee of $25 is requested for an online meeting with our database consultant, who will merge your data into the updated version. Contact the Pittsburgh Mercy Parish Nurse & Health Ministry Program office at 412-442-1951 or ParishNurse@pittsburghmercy.org to make arrangements.
