social mediaElectronic Health Records

An electronic health record, or EHR, is a digital copy of your health history. It has the same information as your paper chart. Because it is digital, your doctor can use it to make faster decisions about your care. An EHR can also be shared with other doctors who are caring for you.

An EHR has many benefits:
  • You and your doctor can see your information faster.
  • Mistakes with your medicines are less likely.
  • Your personal information is safer.
  • Your prescriptions reach your pharmacy faster.
  • You spend less time filling out paperwork.
  • You are less likely to have to repeat medical tests.
