Benefit of Electronic Health Records
In this paper I will demonstrate communication modality of EHR’s uses in health care. My focus is on Electronic Medical Records (EHR), and various approaches to using them. Electronic Medical Records have become a vital tool in health care facilities. They provide a uniform method of communication between doctors and other health care workers, without the necessity for handwritten information that is stored in a specific location. Necessary patient information can be acquired from various locations securely with a password. Paper based records are gradually being phased out and being replaced by computer based records. The transition is not yet complete but should be in the immediate future. Electronic Medical Records are the heart of computerized health information systems without then much of modern technology cannot be successfully coordinated into the typical clinical workflow.
