Digitizing Healthcare

“The Electronic Health Record (EHR) of a person is a longitudinal electronic record of his/her health information generated by one or more encounters in any care delivery setting.”

An EHR system automates and streamlines the clinician’s workflow to generate a complete electronic record of a patient’s clinical encounter. It further supports other care-related activities such as evidence-based decision support, quality management and outcomes reporting.

It is important to note that, while EHR is generated and maintained within an institution, such as a hospital, clinic, or physician office, it’s intend is to give patients, physicians, health care providers, employers and insurers access to a person’s medical records across facilities.

“The Government of India, under the Ministry of Health and family welfare, has released the Standards for EHR Compliance, in August 2013. The Ministry has since been encouraging healthcare facilities to comply with the Indian EHR standards, while making them mandatory for all Government level health initiatives.”

EHRs are real-time, patient-centred 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, immunization dates, allergies, radiology images, and laboratory and test results

  • Allow access to evidence-based tools that providers can use to make decisions about a patient’s care

  • Automate and streamline provider workflow

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.

Our world has been radically transformed by digital technology – smart phones, tablets, and web-enabled devices have transformed our daily lives and the way we communicate. Medicine is an information-rich enterprise. A greater and more seamless flow of information within a digital health care infrastructure, created by electronic health records (EHRs), encompasses and leverages digital progress and can transform the way care is delivered and compensated. With EHRs, information is available whenever and wherever it is needed.
