The technological advancements have changed our lives tremendously. The impact of technology can be seen in every field of life. In the healthcare industry, technology has not only helped improve the quality of life with new machines and medicines but also has helped both the healthcare providers and patients with patient information at the fingertips which facilitate faster decisions. The electronic medical records and electronic health records are a result of the technology. Let us a take a look at some of the recent trends in the electronic health records arena.

Using mobile technology: With more and more people using smartphones, there is an increase in the demand for access to medical records on mobile phones. Since patients move from one place to another and visit different specialists, it is understood that it becomes necessary to be able to access the information from anywhere.
The cloud technology comes with its own benefits of cost-effectiveness, more storage capacity and security. This induces healthcare providers to use cloud technology to maintain their electronic health records.

Linking pharmacies: Using the technology more and more pharmacies are getting linked with healthcare providers and this facilitates easy access to medication prescribed by physicians and helps in reducing errors that occur due to the illegible writing of the physicians.

Integration with medical billing: With the growing use of technology many healthcare providers are looking for vendors who can provide both medical billing and EHR solutions as integrated services.
Integration with telemedicine market: The telemedicine market is seeing a growth and many physicians are searching for opportunities that help them in providing best healthcare to their patients even remotely. In such scenario, it becomes important that such remote care providers integrate their services with the electronic health records to be compliant with the healthcare regulations.
