1. Electronic Medical Records

1.1. Records are typically found in a singular medical practice that contains the patient's medical history, and the different treatments and diagnoses.

2. Electronic Health Records

2.1. Digital version of a patient's complete medical history, which can be shared with other providers. Providers have access to real-time information.

3. Personal Health Records/Patient Portal

3.1. Records to which the patient has access to. The patient is able to communicate with the medical practice and practitioners, as well as keep track of appointments and medications.

4. Electronic Prescribing

4.1. Practitioners are able to contact pharmacy directly, eliminating the need for paper prescriptions and any misinterpretations of the prescription.

5. Privacy and Security

5.1. With proper protection system set up, such as passwords and encryptions, records are only accessible by authorized people. This ables patients' medical history to be protected and secure from those not authorized to view the information.

6. Telehealth/telemedicine

6.1. The ability for patients to receive care from practitioners through an online video service without leaving the comforts of their home or massively interrupting their schedule. Telehealth prevents patients from spreading any illnesses they might have by not seeing a practitioner in their office.
