EHRs are about more than meaningful use [VIDEO]

If your practice has implemented an electronic health records system, then hopefully you and your staff have been experiencing the many ways that EHRs can benefit you and your patients. While you're probably working hard to qualify for meaningful use incentives, it's important to remember that EHRs are not just about meaningful use – they were designed to help streamline the way you deliver care.

Health IT Outcomes magazine published an article that pointed out that some healthcare providers have become so focused on meaningful use, they're forgetting the big picture when it comes to EHRs.

The news source conducted a survey which found that one of the major benefits of EHRs is that quick and simultaneous data access. This allows doctors to treat patients faster and with greater efficiency, since they have all pertinent patient information right in front of them with a click of a button.
