Electronic Health Records (EHR)

Data-X-ChangeWhat Are electronic Health Records (EHRs)?
EHRs in simplicity are real-time, digital (computerized) versions of patient’s paper charts. But EHRs, when fully up and running, are so much more than that – they make information available instantly, “whenever and wherever it is needed”. EHRs can:

  • Contain information about a patient’s medical history, diagnosis, medications, immunization dates, allergies, radiology images, lab and test results.
  • Offer access to evidence-based tools that providers use in making decisions about a patient’s care.
  • Increase organization and accuracy of patient information.
  • Support key market changes in payer requirements and consumer expectations.
  • Automate and streamline provider’s workflow.

One of the key features of an EHR is that it can be created, managed, and consulted by authorized providers and staff across more than one health care organization. A single EHR can bring together information from current and past doctors, emergency facilities, school and workplace clinics, pharmacies, laboratories, and medical imaging facilities.
