About Electronic Health Records
EHR (Electronic Health Record) is a real-time, patient-centered record that makes information available instantly and securely to authorized users.
An EHR Contains a patient's medical history, diagnoses, medications, treatment plans, immunization dates, allergies, radiology images, and laboratory and test results; It is also built to go beyond standard clinical data collected in a provider’s office and is inclusive of a broader view of a patient’s care.
Why should you use it?
EHR is a digital version of a patient’s paper chart, which helps dentists give the best possible care.
It is built to share information with other healthcare 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.
EHR gives accurate and complete information about patients health and medical history at the dentists fingertips. This can lead to a better patient experience and, most importantly, better patient outcomes.
