Electronic Health Record (EHR) Infographic by HealthIT.Gov

Electronic Health Record (EHR) Infographic - View the Infograph on the history of Electronic Health Records (EHR) and how they may improve your health and health care in the future just posted by HealthIT.Gov.
 
How do electronic health records (EHR) connect you and your doctor? In the past, medical data was only stored on paper, making it difficult for your health care providers to share your information. Between 2001 and 2011, the number of doctors using an EHR system grew about 57%, making it easier for you and all of your doctors to coordinate your care, and often reducing the chance of medical errors. Where are electronic health records headed? In this new Infographic just posted by HealthIT.Gov, view the history of EHR systems and see how they may improve your health today - and health care in the future.

I'm always keeping an eye out for the latest statistics or graphs related to Open Source and eHealth systems. I think you'll find this latest gem of interest.  You might also want to check out related information posted on the COSI 'Open' Health portal.

If you have run across an interesting Infographic about Open Source, Health IT Systems, or the Healthcare industry - please send it along so we can share it with others.
