The Potential of the Electronic Health Record in the Breast Center
The electronic health record continues to mature as a component of the health care system. As these systems are increasingly adopted, they bring more widespread access to computer technology in the hospital and the office. An increasing number of specialty-specific applications are possible. These can be used to store data, facilitate decision making through the use of clinical algorithms, track various quality measures, and assess performance of a group or the individual.
