The global electronic health records (EHR) market is estimated to reach USD 23.5 Billion by 2021, expanding at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2017 to 2021, due to physician preference and its adoption worldwide. In the past two decades, the healthcare industry has witnessed a rapid adoption of EHR systems across healthcare facilities from medium to large-sized hospitals to small-sized medical practices. Implementation of electronic health records has also proved to decrease medical costs and improved patient care. Recent technological EHR advancements include cloud-based EHRs, improved patient portals, growth of telehealth industry, and mobile accessible EHRs.
An electronic health record (EHR) is a digital version of a patient’s paper chart. EHRs are real-time, patient-centered records that make information available instantly and securely to authorized users. While an EHR does contain the medical and treatment histories of patients, an EHR system is built to go beyond standard clinical data collected in a provider’s office and can be inclusive of a broader view of a patient’s care.
EHRs can contain a patient’s medical history, diagnoses, medications, treatment plans, allergies, radiology images, and laboratory and test results. An EHR typically contains information such as the patient’s demographics, contact information, vital signs, allergies, medical history, current and past medications, immunizations, radiology reports and laboratory data. It allows access to evidence-based tools that providers can use to make decisions about a patient’s care and also automate and streamline provider workflow.
An EHR can improve patient care by reducing the incidence of medical error by improving the accuracy and clarity of medical records, by making the health information available, reducing duplication of tests, reducing delays in treatment, and patients well informed to take better decisions, and reducing medical error by improving the accuracy and clarity of medical records. One of the key features of an EHR is that health information can be created and managed by authorized providers in a digital format capable of being shared with other providers across more than one health care organization. EHRs are built to share information with other health care providers and organizations – such as laboratories, specialists, medical imaging facilities, pharmacies, emergency facilities, and school and workplace clinics – so they contain information from all clinicians involved in a patient’s care.
