ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS (EHR) 2EHRAbstractOne of the main features of the electronic health record can be managed and created by authorized providers. A greater and a lot more seamless flow of information within the digitalhealth care infrastructure is created by the EHR that tends to encompasses as well as leverages digital progress and can transform the way care is compensated and delivered. The EHR is nowadays the backbone of the medical industry.IntroductionThe entire project will revolve around the central topic that is EHR. The electronic health record is mainly the digital version of the patient's paper chart. The electronic health record ispatient-centered records, real-time that make the information available in a secured and instant manner to the users. This type of records can be shared across each and every health care setting. The project will, however, discuss what exactly EHR is and what are its concepts, how vital are the electronic records for the healthcare and what are the standards and regulation required for implementing it. DiscussionEHR and its conceptsIt has been observed the EHR is a collection that is quite systemized of the population as wellas the patient in an electronically stored health information in the format that is digital. Furthermore, more than a decade ago the electronic health records were touted as the key for enhancing the quality health care (Romano & Stafford, 2011). In recent times, the providers
ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS (EHR) 3are mainly using data from the records of the patient for enhancing outcomes via their care management programs. Combining a lot of clinical data from the system's health record has helped the clinicians for stratifying and identifying the patients who are extremely ill. However, EHR can also enhance the quality care by using the data as well as the analytics forpreventing the hospitalizations among the patients who are in the high-risk zones. Throwing light on the above-mentioned discussion it can be also said that EHR is also designed for storing the data in an accurate manner as well as to capture the patient's state across the time. It also abolishes the need for tracking down the past paper medical records ofthe patient and also it tends to assist in making sure the data is legible as well as accurate. Therisk of data replication is also reduced at an alarming rate (Jensen, Jensen & Brunak, 2012). EHRs are also regarded as the next step in the continuous progress with regards to the healthcare that has the ability for strengthening the relationship between the clinicians and thepatients. It has been automated by EHR for accessing the information and also has the potential for streamlining the workflow of the clinicians. Furthermore, EHR also possesses the ability to support the other care-related activities indirectly or directly via various interfaces, consisting of evidence-based decision support, outcomes reporting as well as quality management. The timelines, and the data and the availability on it, that tends to ensure providers make the best decisions as well as provide the best care. For instance, the EHR can enhance patient care by:Making the information of the health available, reducing the possible delays in the treatment, reducing the duplication of the tests as much as possible, as well as patients well informed formaking better decisions
