Why is Electronic Medical Record Important?

Having a patient’s electronic medical record is important because it allows for instantaneous examination of a patients previous care and medical health information anywhere a patient goes. Seeing a patient’s combined record can prove useful in many ways. One way is that a patient will never be prescribed two prescription drugs that will conflict or interact. It also prevents abuse of the system by the patient where a patient might visit several different Dr.’s for the same thing attempting to get multiple scripts for narcotic pain medicines to support a drug abuse problem. Patients will get the best care possible because their Dr. will be armed with the fullest knowledge of the patient and a well rounded picture of what is needed.
