How Rheumatologists Can Benefit From EHR

Electronic Health Records

Electronic Health Records

Rheumatologists deal with diverse data and symptoms originating in different parts of the body, which requires effort and organizational skills to record efficiently. Rheumatology specialists diagnose and treat a large variety of disorders, including rheumathoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, vasculitis, lupus, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, spondylitis and diverse causes of joint, bone or muscle pain of inflammatory or degenerative origin. Electronic health records (EHR) can help input, organize and process the medical data in a standardized manner, which enables easy retrieval and facilitates clear diagnosis and treatment decisions.
