EHR a priority for Healthcare and Hospital CIO

A recent study released by Level 3 Communications has shown that the proper creation, development and implementation of EHR (Electronic Health Records) is the biggest priority for health sector Chief of Information Officers (CIO).

EHRs are defined as a complete record of a clinical patient encounter with health services. It is based in the possibility of creating a total panorama of the health of the patient and, by updating the data to a digital format, it allows EHRs to become immediate information between providers, doctors, hospitals and health organizations.

The creation and the full application of EHRs is leading to improved care and efficiency. It is also allowing to upgrade the network infrastructure between the elements of health and medical services; however, the worry that EHRs compromise sensitive information has grown and many institutions are not sure how to protect the data across the whole network.

In addition to that, the creation and management of efficient EHRs is now the biggest challenge, with a great number of unhappy users surfacing.

Nonetheless, Electronic Health Records and improvement in the health IT sector are now a priority for organizations. The development of trends such as the e-health, m-health and cloud computing will help the healthcare industry to erase the lag it has in comparison to other industries.
