Describe the critical role of health information exchange in patient care

Answer:

When health care providers have access to complete and accurate information, patients receive better medical care. Electronic health records (EHRs) can improve the ability to diagnose diseases and reduce—even prevent—medical errors, improving patient outcomes.
Therefore, health systems have three independent outcome-oriented objectives: health utility, process utility, and financial fairness.
