“According to the survey by Medscape, 91% of participating doctors said they were using EHRs in 2016, with another 5% planning to implement an EHR.”
The healthcare industry is driven by everyday technology development and improvement. Process automation, faster systems, data management and medical privacy are part of a high-stakes game. With the standard for medical data becoming digital, electronic health records (EHR) and the security surrounding them can make a real difference in quality of care.
Here is why EHR will soon be a standard operating procedure for healthcare professionals and their organizations.
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) was passed by the U.S. Congress in 2009. Together with Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015, legislators stimulated the healthcare industry to adopt quality EHR software, in order to focus on improving efficiency and adhering to regulatory controls.
