What They Are and Why You Need One
If you are like most people, you probably don’t think about your health all that often. But what happens when you do need to go to the doctor? Do you know what information the doctor needs in order to treat you? Chances are, unless you have been keeping track of it yourself, you will not be able to provide the doctor with everything they need. This is where electronic health records come in. An electronic health record is a digital version of your medical history. It can include information on allergies, medications, past surgeries, and more!
The first thing you need to do is create an account with a secure site like myEHR. This will allow you to input your information and keep it safe. You can also choose who has access to your information and what information they are able to see. Once you have an account, you can start inputting your medical history. It is important to be as detailed as possible, so that the doctor will have all the information they need in order to treat you properly.
Secondly, you will need to find a doctor who is willing to input their information into your account. This can be done by searching for doctors in your area who are registered with myEHR. Once you have found a doctor, you can schedule an appointment and they will input their information into your account.
Finally, once you have all of your information inputted, you can start using it! When you go to the doctor, simply log into your account and give them access. This way, they will be able to see everything they need in order to treat you properly.
