Electronic health records (EHRs) allow for the systematic collection and management of patient health information in a form that can be shared across multiple health care settings. By providing easier access to patients’ medical records, EHRs can help improve healthcare quality, efficiency, and safety. But despite these advantages, the expense of system implementation has slowed EHR adoption rates, even though they have the potential to significantly reduce health care expenses over time. This session of Public Health Grand Rounds will explore the issues of EHR implementation with particular attention to public and population health while addressing concerns of cost, patient confidentiality, and other challenges.
