Peter Groen | Open Health News | October 7, 2011

HealthIT.Gov now has a multi-media page contaioning a range of video presentations by health care providers and managers about their experiences in implementing and using health IT systems like Electronic Health Records (EHR) and how it relates to patients and their families.  See videos at HealthIT.Gov

Innovative health care can save lives and every physician and health care provider has a stake in its success. Through the use of electronic health records (EHRs), the coordination of health care for an individual patient between various practitioner offices is more efficient and accurate, resulting in better overall patient care. With an EHR, a patient's information is always current and coordinated, helping to eliminate medical errors and duplicative paperwork. Dr. Farzad Mostashari (ONC), Dr. Donald Berwick and other health care professionals discuss how EHR technology may help reduce the cost of health care and improve health outcomes—leading to a healthier future for all Americans.
