YouTube and the Electronic Health Record!

While browsing some articles regarding the current use of EHR’s in the UK to provide patients with access to their records I came upon the following URL:


I watched and suddenly realised that this was just the introduction to a series of very interesting short videos around a range of issues and concerns about how proper patient access could be safely and sensibly provided and what the potential benefits and risks might be.

I then noticed there were all sorts of other related material available.

To check things out I then tried a search for “Electronic Health Record”

The results of my search can be found here:

The Continuity of Care Record (CCR) standard is a patient health summary standard. It is a way to create flexible documents that contain the most relevant and timely core health information about a patient, and to send these electronically from one care giver to another. It contains various sections such as patient demographics, insurance information, diagnosis and problem list, medications, allergies and care plan. These represent a "snapshot" of a patient's health data that can be useful or possibly lifesaving, if available at the time of clinical encounter. The ASTM CCR standard is designed to permit easy creation by a physician using an electronic health record (EHR) system at the end of an encounter.
