re: EHRs Improve Patient Outcomes, Kaiser Study Says
While it may seem obvious when you think about it, it often takes a while for people to come to a better understanding of the usefulness of EHRs. How else could a group find out all their diabetic patients with high A1Cs and other lab values? Then once they have that list, how can they maintain the consistent follow-up needed to ensure compliance? EHRs are such useful tools for chronic disease management and I'm hopeful that groups with EHRs will keep publishing articles like this so we can encourage better adoption!
