ELECTRONIC HEALTH CARE RECORDS 2
Electronic healthcare records(EHRs) refer to detailed health accounts that are created by
the health care provider across the industry to store the medical information of the individuals
(MIS.edu, 2015). The electronic healthcare record is an automated system that stores information
such as patient's health problems, demographic, medication, progress notes, vital signs,
laboratory data, past medical history, radiology report, and immunization. This essay contains a
comprehensive exploitation of the benefits of EHRs
EHRs promote increased communication between the physician and the patient. Use of
EHRs enhance increased participation of the patient and the physician by allowing access to the
patient’s medical information and history by the both parties rather than the current visit
snapshot overview (MIS.edu, 2015). This full access to the patient’s medical history enables the
doctor to make in-depth evolution resulting to more accurate diagnosis.
EHRs contribute to improved care coordination which enables the doctors to have quick
and easy access and transfer of the patient’s information as they need it. EHRs facilitates quick
transfer of information from one department to another in the healthcare center which saves time
and cost (MIS.edu, 2015). Through improved care coordination, the physicians can respond
positively to the process improvement as it can assist them to keep a track record.
The program is cost saving and enhances medical practice efficiencies. Many medical
care providers have a testimony that EHRs contributes to improved health practice management
by improving practice efficiencies and cost saving (MIS.edu, 2015).
