Electronic Medical Record

Yay or Nay?


An EMR or Electronic Medical Record takes a patient's medical information, digitizes it, and puts it in a database for your doctors to see. Some would say that these are bad to have because people could hack into your database and get your medical records while others say that its great because you can have easier access of your medical information. Obama wants to take money of the taxes we already pay and use it to let everyone have a EMR. Personally I think that, that isn't a bright idea because we can use that money on other things closer to home rather than giving someone I have never met or will not meet in my life an EMR. Now if you really want a EMR you can go to certain doctors offices that keep these records.
