    "The benefits of EHR adoption for practitioners include rapid and thorough access to complete chart information (including labs and radiology) and easier and faster prescription refills with e-prescribe. As for the patients, physicians can trend and graph results enabling them to identify trends. They have the ability to show such trends and radiologic images, online in the patient room, in order to involve them in their care."

  • The Electronic Health Record Opportunity

    As the widespread adoption of EHRs quickly approaches, the RECs act as your partner on the road to providing better health care and improved treatment outcomes. Dr. Farzad Mostashari and representatives from the RECs discuss strategies to bridge the technology gap and assist health care practitioners in providing optimum patient care.

    “Using an EHR provides a more thorough process of charting a patient’s history, physical, and exams. In time, we have learned to use our system more effectively. In turn, our patients are better taken care of. There is no “pulling” of charts, no “filling” and no “lost charts.” I can see everything the patient has come in for, diagnoses, prescriptions, labs, and referrals. The EHR has helped me become a better health care provider.”
