Key Questions: How can healthcare providers effectively transition to digital health information integration? Which elements need focus in this transition?
This tool provides a framework to encourage and support the transition from a model of segregated health information to an integrated health information paradigm through digital health information sharing.
The objective of this document is to demonstrate that the potential benefits of an integrated health record are substantial, and that the concerns of providers can be managed. Health care and medical science should embrace well‐proven technologies that benefit their patients. To not innovate within the health care system in the face of compelling evidence is a failure to the citizens that support and use the system.
