Personal Health - Hospital Systems Are Making a Push for Electronic Medical Records - NYTimes.com
This is a great article on eHealth Records. A lot of facilities are using some electronic charting and a hard chart and for anyone having an office visit, surgery, etc. There can be tons of disconnects between practitioners. For the time being, I suggest to anyone with multiple specialists, designate a notebook about your medications, symptoms, concerns and bring that to office visits.
I was just on a z-pack for a sinus infection and basically rattled off when my nose went to ruin, etc.
Take charge of your health!
