What Is an Electronic Health Record?
- It’s a digital record of your health information that can provide your care team with comprehensive health information about you
- Overtime, it can allow your providers to share important information, across different health care settings
- It is designed to allow appropriate information sharing beyond the health care provider who first collects the information
- Built to share information with other providers, such as labs and specialists
- The information can move with you—to the specialist, the hospital, the nursing home, the next state, or even across the country!!!
