Health information technology (health IT) makes it possible for
health care providers to better manage patient care through secure use
and sharing of health information. Health IT includes the use of
electronic health records (EHRs) instead of paper medical records to
maintain people’s health information.
Share the EHR platform that your practice uses and discuss the
challenges and barriers to electronic charting. Why have we moved from
paper charting to EHR’s? What is meant by meaningful use regulations
and why is this important to know when documenting in the EHR?
