From artificial intelligence (AI) and telemedicine to wearable health devices and precision medicine, technology is the driving force behind innovations in healthcare. Let’s look at the dynamic ways technology is shaping the future of healthcare and how these advancements are poised to revolutionize the industry.
Many healthcare organizations have digitized their processes, which include using electronic health records (EHRs). EHRs help improve the accuracy and accessibility of patient information. If you're wondering whether transitioning from paper to digital records is worth it for your firm, here's what you should consider.
More and more healthcare organizations are realizing that there are more problems with paper-based medical records than there are benefits, and that it’s time to adopt electronic health records (EHRs). But while EHR systems offer better data management and security, they also come with certain inconveniences and inefficiencies.
The healthcare industry is embracing the use of electronic health records (EHRs). It advances a new type of data management system that aims to improve on traditional paper-based ways. But will it?
What is an electronic health record?
An electronic health record (EHR) is an individual’s official health document accessible via mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, and shareable between multiple facilities and agencies.
Ease of access, legibility, and accuracy are key considerations when maintaining health records, especially to ensure compliance with industry regulations. With an EHR system, navigating through patients’ entire medical histories has become much more convenient and secure.
Electronic health records (EHR) have enabled the healthcare industry to make spectacular advancements in patient care. But with this new technology comes concerns regarding privacy and security. While many companies are flocking to the cloud, some healthcare practices are creating better solutions with virtualization technology.
The business world has had a long-standing debate about the best means of data storage. The healthcare industry has now decided to join in the debate with increasing adoption of EHRs. Electronic health records claim to improve on current paper-based methods.
Having to “check the files” without the aid of computers can be quite cumbersome. In the healthcare industry in particular, patient files are practically libraries unto themselves with medical history, allergies, vaccine status, lab test results, personal statistics, billing info, etc.
