EHRs: New Possibilites, New Problems

The Fall CIO Forum of the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) showcased the benefits being obtained from electronic medical records (EMR). However, some presentations pointed out challenges that accompany the massive amounts of available data.

Healthcare providers are no longer just collecting clinical and financial data but are employing analytics to improve care and reduce costs.

"New questions are emerging about how data are going to be accessed and who is going to be allowed to have access to them."
