What is an electronic health record (EHR)?

An electronic health record (EHR) is more than just a computerized version of your paper chart. It’s a digital record of your health information that can provide your health care team with comprehensive health information about you. Over time, it can allow your providers to share important information, across different health care settings, while maintaining EHR patient confidentiality in accordance with federal and state privacy and security requirements.
