Benefits of IHealth
Electronic health records (EHRs) give your care team immediate access to your patient information so they can provide better, safer and more informed care. EHRs can also:
- Increase patient safety by reducing medication administration errors and provide cleared information about risks, such as violence and infections.
- Involve you in your healthcare journey
- Eliminate the need to repeat your health history to every new care provider.
- Provide stronger continuity of care
- Increase efficiencies between your healthcare team members, as they will have immediate access to the information they need to provide safe, quality care.
