Implications of EHR on Medical Research

May 13, 2011 No Comments

One of the major purposes of the federal program for the meaningful use of electronic health records (EHRs) is to produce improved clinical outcomes for patients. Providing patients access to their personal health information and having that information available to their families, caregivers and healthcare providers anywhere at any time is another core requirement of the this program.

According to 2011 Leadership Survey produced by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), 50 percent of healthcare IT executives identified “meaningful use” criteria as their top priority for the next two years.
