EHRs encourage doctor collaboration [VIDEO]

These days, people are being encouraged to take greater control of their health. As part of this, it’s becoming increasingly common for patients to ask for second opinions and visit multiple doctors.

Collaborating with other physicians can be a complicated process if you’re still using paper-based files. However, with electronic health records all it takes is a few simple clicks of a button.

Being able to electronically share patient files with other providers has many benefits. For instance, doctors working in rural hospitals may not have access to the same tools as those who operate out of large cities. When rural doctors need a second opinion, they need to be able to quickly share files and assistance fast. EHRs make this possible.

This helps close the gap between the care available in rural areas versus large cities, which is beneficial for both patients and providers.
