Better EHRs for physicians and patients: Good data, right regulations are key
Over an ordinary bowl of morning cornflakes, patient Jill swipes open her phone to catch up on news.
But it’s not political commentary or social network updates, it’s news about her: a review of how she performed on her movement goal yesterday; how her resting heart rate this month, on average, compared to last month’s; how her sleep habits may be contributing to productivity challenges; and the latest research about her chronic disease. A digital coach even sends encouragement, highlighting key metrics for optimal disease management and health. All before she’s left for work, this patient has a clear picture of what she needs to do to improve or maintain wellness for the day.
