Today’s health care providers have the capability to use the data generated through the use of an electronic health record (EHR) system to dramatically improve both the delivery and effectiveness of healthcare while engaging their patients in a variety of ways. New opportunities for physicians to deliver personalized health-related information, take part in interactive discussions, and create new social experiences that enhance patient relationships are provided by rapidly evolving tools like the patient portal, patient health record (PHR), health information exchanges (HIE), and the patient centered medical home (PCMH).

EMR Adoption - Why are Some Physicians Reluctant?

With the introduction of Cloud technology in the healthcare industry, several EMR vendors are consistently trying to come up with even more advanced and innovative EMR solutions. After all, who wouldn’t want to capture the market share?

Are Physicians the Key to the Acceptance of Personal Health Records?

That leads me to another key point: Without doctors using EHRs, you're not going to get buy-in from patients to use personal health records to manage their own health. When patients are relatively healthy, encounters with healthcare providers are few and far between. Starting a PHR to track very occasional vaccinations or even to record a yearly exam isn't a high priority for a lot of people unless it's super easy to do. That means having data available from healthcare provider to load into a digital record, not typed by hand by the patient...

HIE provides the capability to electronically move clinical information among Health Information systems. By acting as a repository, its importance lies in its ability to facilitate physicians and clinicians meeting high standards of patient care through electronic participation in a patient's continuity of care with multiple providers. Secondary health care provider benefits include reduced expenses associated with: duplicate tests, time involved in recovering missing patient information, paper, ink and associated office machinery, manual printing, scanning and faxing of documents, the physical mailing of entire patient charts, and manual phone communication to verify delivery of traditional communications, referrals and test results.
