Post a brief description of general healthcare technology trends, particularly related to data/information you have observed in use in your healthcare organization or nursing practice. The most prominent example of healthcare technology trends is the use of electronic medical records (EMR). The use of electronic medical records improves patient care and outcomes; it allows for data collection and analysis, which will improve patient care over time. An electronic medical record is a secure real-time patient chart in electronic form. It is a chart that can easily be accessed by authorized personal where all of the patient's cumulative medical information is stored such as vital sign trends, medical history, medication allergies, prescriptions, procedures and so much more ("What is an electronic health record (HER)? | HealthIT.gov," 2019). In my hospital all of the patient's chart is on an (EMR) and can be accessed by staff in multiple department's and units all at the same time, medical professionals can add to the electronic medical records as the patients care progress's and able to be recalled in following visits. The provider can easily access the medical records from their office by logging on to the secure system.
