A new introduction to the medical word
I am in favor to the investment of government dollars to make sure the health records of all Americans are computerized within the next five years. Studies show that EMR’s are better than paper documents because it allows providers to track data over time, Identify patients who are due for preventive visits and screening. With the electronic records they can monitor how patients measure up to a certain parameters, such as vaccinations and blood pressure readings along with being able to Improve overall quality of care in a practice. Improving to electronic computerized documents would improve the healthcare system in many ways, being a big help in the healthcare field of study.
