Electronic Health Records (EHRs)

Electronic Health Records (EHRs) are safe and confidential records that your doctor, other health care provider, medical office staff, or a hospital keeps on a computer about your health care or treatments. If your providers use electronic health records, they can join a network to securely share your records with each other.

  • EHRs can help lower the chances of medical errors, eliminate 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.
