“Access to and correct usage of patient Electronic Health Records (EHRs)/Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) provide major benefits to patients and physicians alike. When properly designed and utilized, EHRs can improve patient safety, increase clinical efficiency, reduce costs, allow seamless transfer of vital patient information, and allow physicians to better use their time and expertise treating patients.”
