In recent years, the government has been making a big push towards the abandonment of older methods of creating, maintaining, and sharing protected health information (PHI) and the adoption of electronic medical records (EMRs). With so many incredible advancements in technology, a growing number of healthcare providers are realizing that this really is the most logical and effective method of handling PHI. By making information more accessible to all necessary parties, EMRs can save time and money, while boosting the quality of patient care at the same time. And when the proper tools and methods are used, security can be significantly improved upon.
