Electronic Health Records
ASPR TRACIE. (2017). Electronic Health Records.
Many healthcare facilities have switched to using electronic health records (EHR) to store patient health history and other data, but many still use paper tracking systems. There are several Health Information Technology/EHR programs available, making interoperability a challenge. Lessons learned from recent disasters highlight both the utility of these programs and the challenges associated with data collection, access, quality, and transfer capabilities. The resources in this Topic Collection include guidance and lessons learned specific to EHR.
