Imagine you are working at a doctor’s office. You are approached by the office manager, who asks you to develop an effective way of storing patient information.
Write a 350- to 700-word summary to your office manager informing her of the advantages of using electronic health records (EHRs) to store patient information. Be clear and concise, use complete sentences, and use examples to support your responses. Your summary should:
- Discuss the functions and advantages of using EHRs.
- Discuss three to four forms used to keep patient information in EHRs. What is the purpose of each form?
- Describe the basic workflow of a health care organization using EHRs.
