The electronic health record is a real-time, system of patient health records in digital format that can be shared across different healthcare settings. With access to evidence-based decision support tools can be used to aid clinicians in decision-making. The goal of an EHR is to automate and streamline workflow in the healthcare setting, ensuring that all clinical information is communicated. It can also prevent delays in response that result in gaps in care. The EHR can also support the collection of data for uses other than clinical care, such as billing, quality management, outcome reporting, and public health disease surveillance and reporting.
