Electronic Health Records (EHRs) are safe, confidential records kept on a computer about your health care or treatments. These records are kept by your doctor, other health care provider, medical office staff, or a hospital. If your providers use EHRs, they can join a network to securely share your records with each other.
- EHRs can help lower the chances of medical errors, prevent duplicate tests, and may improve your overall quality of care.
- EHRs can help your providers have the same up-to-date information about your conditions, treatments, tests, and prescriptions.
