Introduction In the past, medical records were being stored in manually in files. Currently, more innovative and useful technologies are being used in healthcare settings. However, not all health care providers have advanced their operations to match the current technologies. Some healthcare providers still keep their medical records on papers which are then stored in manual filing systems.

Problem Description When information is stored manually in files, it is difficult to record patients information. The records occupy a lot of physical space hence increase cost. A paper record has only one copy and if the copy is lost, the information on it is lost and no one can use the information. In addition, paper records are vulnerable to unplanned destruction, for instance by fire, rodents, and flooding. Those are just some of the major challenges that the health care providers using manual filing systems face in storing patients’ information manually.

Cont’ Digital technology has radically transformed the world and it is difficult to imagine any industry that does not depend on technology for more efficiency and productivity. In the medical field, technology is equally important because it is required to manage the large volumes of data created and stored in clinics, hospitals and medical practices for every patient. It is, therefore, the right time for medical organizations that have not yet transitioned from manual filing system to digital systems to do so.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
