How EHR has Affected Healthcare Providers and Patients

12.29.2359 hours agoHow EHR has Affected Healthcare Providers and Patients

1. To sum it up, an EHR is a software system that can be used in multiple locations to access healthcare document information and manage those records. The electronic record can contain any information entered by a healthcare provider, whether they be from a family medicine practice, a specialist, or emergency care staff. Information such as past and current medications, allergies, radiology, and laboratory results, shot records, and any treatments the patient is currently going through. With all this information available, doctors and nurses will be able to assess a patient’s needs and begin treatment more quickly. The scope doesn’t stop at simply holding the information, though. Often, EHR software can bring up alerts for medication interactions, allergies, and other forms of treatment that could negatively affect the patient. Another benefit of managing these records electronically is that they can be accessed and transferred quickly across a medical facility. When a new medicine is...

EHR technology offers a blanket of protection during patient care; however, multiple reports of patient safety threats during EHR system downtime highlight the unintended consequences of integrating technology into health care delivery (Kashiwagi, et al., 2016).

Does the use of EHRs in healthcare have a negative connotation?
