If you are in the medical profession you can’t help but to have been hearing a lot about the use of EHR or electronic health records. Unless you are completely in the dark, you should also be aware of the fact that by 2014 you will be required to be fully converted over to using this type of record keeping for all of your patients.
EHR Offers Many Advantages
While you may be concerned with the fact that you are going to have some expenses in order to implement EHR into your medical facility, you will qualify for reimbursement from the government as long as you implement this system by 2014. Storing your patients’ medical records digitally offers a number of advantages such as providing you instant access rather than having to wait while your staff pulls the file and goes through it to make sure it is all up to date.
