Knowledge of Patient Information = More Effective Healthcare
Despite unparalleled clinical and technological developments and the passage of healthcare reform, the United States is a long way from achieving the goal of patient centered health care. While impressive advancements in medical knowledge are accelerating at a mind-boggling rate, knowledge and distribution of patient health information is ineffective and not readily available to the majority of healthcare providers.
It is abundantly clear: while optimal treatment requires clinical expertise, ready access to a patient’s medical record is equally important. Moreover, a sputtering economy and higher insurance costs affect the financial security and health of millions of Americans. In the coming years, our health care system is preparing to serve up to 30 million newly insured Americans, as well as surging numbers of patients with chronic conditions. Hence, measures must be taken to protect members on several fronts. Information about current medications, allergies, recent tests, and recent care can save lives and decrease the amount of time in care.
