Electronic Health Record


Electronic Health Records (EHRs) is Patient Data collected by ALL Health Care Providers and are inclusive of a broader view of a patient’s care.

Electronic Health Records, ideally, contain Patient Data from all Health Care Providers involved in a patient’s care and all authorized Health Care Providers involved in a patient’s care can access the information to provide care to that patient.

Electronic Health Records also share information with other Health Care Providers, such as laboratories and specialists.

Electronic Health Records follow patients – to the specialist, the hospital, the nursing home, or even across the country.

Electronic Health Record is considered Protected Health Information and Personally Identifiable Information by most parties.
