Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Electronic Health Records

Electronic health records (EHRs) are digital versions of a patient’s medical history that are used to store and manage healthcare information. They can include a wide range of data, such as patient demographics, medical history, allergies, medications, test results, and treatment plans. EHRs can be accessed by authorized healthcare providers and can be used to support patient care, improve the efficiency of healthcare delivery, and facilitate research and population health management.

EHRs can be accessed and updated by authorized healthcare providers through a secure computer network, and they are typically accessed using a unique login and password. EHRs can be used to support a variety of healthcare activities, such as prescribing medications, ordering tests, and documenting patient visits. They can also be used to track patient progress, monitor treatment plans, and support population health management efforts.

EHRs have the potential to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery by enabling healthcare providers to access important patient information in a timely manner. They can also help reduce the risk of errors and improve patient safety by providing a complete and accurate record of a patient’s care. However, EHRs also raise concerns about privacy and security, as they contain sensitive personal and medical information that must be protected. It is important for healthcare organizations to implement appropriate security measures to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of EHRs.
