Electronic health records have made their way into hospitals across the country, according to Global Healthcare. It makes sense, too, since these systems make accessing patient data a breeze.

If a doctor needs to update a patient’s file, it can be done then and there. If the pharmacy needs someone’s prescription, it can be sent easily.

Regulatory compliance documents, tax preparation files and more should be stored digitally – just like patient health records.
