Affairs, (2012,). The benefits of electronic and personal health records.? What are the short and long term effects of patients and physicians utilizing electronic medical records?? How will the implementation of EMR’s reduce readmission rates?? Involving family member in their plan of treatment.? What are the barriers of personal and electronic health records? In closing, with the introduction of electronic medical records and personal health records (PHR) it allows patients and their caregivers the opportunity to better manage their care. Unfortunately, one of the glaring issues reported from the “ Mathematical Policy Research that most patients”(Bagchi, A. 2007) have encountered with utilizing personal health records has been the lack of access to a computer or any electrical device that can be used to access their health records (Group, 2005).” This minor hiccup should not discourage individuals from taking full advantage of what PHR’s have to offer. The overall benefits of Personal health records allow patients to “achieve their healthcare goals” (Clinic, 2007).Works CitedBagchi, A. M. (2007).
