Laboratory Professional’s Role in Electronic Health Records

Electronic Health Records (EHRs) will play a large role in the future healthcare landscape; it’s imperative these systems display laboratory data accurately and efficiently. The Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services at the Centers for Disease Control recently published a paper about the role Laboratory Professionals can play in the development of electronic health records.

The paper concludes, in part, that “Laboratory professionals and organizations can support the future vision and help improve the overall quality of healthcare for individual patients and the national population.”
