A complete medical history can help doctors and healthcare service providers make more accurate assessments and provide the best treatments for their patients. Thanks to the implementation of electronic health records or EHRs, healthcare providers can now offer more reliable services and treatments. This is made possible by the fact that EHRs can be accessed from any facility in a matter of seconds. When stored offline, patients can simply bring a flash drive – or store their medical history on their phones – to enjoy the same benefits.
According to Ohio University’s MHA online program, the use of EHRs also comes with other benefits. The different improvements to the system enable doctors and physicians from different facilities to work together in handling a medical case through information sharing and cloud computing. EHRs are reshaping the healthcare industry in a lot of ways.
