How do we improve clinical processes and outcomes?

Once the EHR is installed and a post implementation evaluation is complete, the health center can now focus on enhancing the quality of patient care through the use of an EHR. An EHR offers new opportunities to collect and track patient information. In addition, numerous EHR products are linked to chronic disease management registries. Disease management registries have the capability of processing large amounts of data and generating reports at the point of care to help providers manage their patients more effectively.
