Electronic health records (EHRs) are an integral component in today’s healthcare industry, offering numerous benefits to practices, providers, and patients alike. Even though patients don’t directly interact with the EHR their provider uses, it can still have a profound impact on their care quality, health outcomes, and overall experience with your practice—for better or for worse.
