Why electronic health records are important?

Health records: beyond the digital filing cabinet

EHRs must provide a sound basis for effective digital health. Artificial intelligence, predictive analytics and population health management all depend on a structured foundation of accurate data.

Enabling digital health services

Data enables clinical and back office decision support. European HIMSS research indicates EHR implementation is the priority for 23% of respondents.

What doctors expect

Providers that want a full view of the patient need to establish EHR databases as a foundation for more complex EHR-driven services.

Looking ahead

Those that have existing EHR databases need to structure and optimise the data to extract greater efficiency and improve health outcomes.
