Electronic Health Records Infographic

Electronic Health Records Infographic

The The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology created this health records infographic to help bring understanding to this issue of electronic health records.

More from their site:

How do electronic health records (EHRs) connect you and your doctor? In the past, medical data was only stored on paper, making it difficult for your health care providers to share your information. Between 2001 and 2011, the number of doctors using an EHRsystem grew about 57%, making it easier for you and all of your doctors to coordinate your care, and often reducing the chance of medical errors. Where are electronic health records headed? In this Infographic, view the history of electronic health records and see how they may improve your health and health care in the future.
