Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
United States is one of the countries in the developed world that is yet to develop a comprehensives healthcare system for all. There are millions of Americans who today have to gamble with their health since they are uncertain of whether they will access healthcare services or not.
The general design of the healthcare system, where the government plays minimal role, has benefited a few but millions are left without health insurance coverage. The whole issue of redesigning U.S healthcare system has been broadly based on cost implications.
As a result, there are various strategies that have been used to improve healthcare delivery in the country without actual implication on cost to consumers. Implementation of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) is one of the different ways that has been proposed to improve healthcare delivery with little or no implications on cost of healthcare to consumers.
