In a world around digital information, an electronic health record is a natural extension of what we expect in our lives, digital transformation from paper based health record to digital record. However, easy access to data is just the most basic benefits of eHR technology. Professionals in clinical information disciplines – especially those earning their health information degree.
Improved Patient Care Coordination
The average patient will meet physicians, experts, nurses, lab technicians and other doctors. Each meeting will produce important information, which, when taken as a whole, gives a true picture of the overall health of the patient. When all care providers have access to the same data, they can avoid duplicate test orders, prescribe contraindicated drugs, and otherwise improve overall care quality.
Improved Patient Care Results
Having a data center repository accessible from any care settings can make a difference in effective treatment delivery. Whether patients are seen in the doctor’s office or at ER, the same information can be found on allergies, medicines and medical history. Data captured by eHR technology can also be used to calculate patient care trends and wider cross-population outcomes, which are another important component in health information disciplines.
Greater Efficiency & Cost Savings
The advantage of using electronic health records is a better outflow of care. This technology enables more efficient patient visits, eliminates duplicate tests, and simplifies easier documentation. All these aspects add to cost savings for doctors and hospitals, as well as for their patients and insurance companies.
More Empowered Patients
When patients have access to their personal health records, they can take an active role in managing their results and overall well-being. The patient’s portal provides lab results, drug information and historical data, while also expanding the easy way to schedule appointments, update prescriptions and communicate electronically.
What to expect for the immediate future

e-Insurance or InsurTech, will be another area we are expect to be see, tag and leverage all the patient healthcare record, to provide comprehensive insurance risk calculation and coverage, and speed up the claim process.
