Robert DeLuca’s EHR Story: Benefits of EHRs for Rural Providers

1-Mar-12 | 6:00

Dr. Robert DeLuca is an osteopathic family physician in Eastland, TX. As a rural provider, he sees the benefits of electronic health records (EHRs) in helping him manage his varied patient population — in his clinic, in the critical access hospital across the street and in the town’s nursing home. EHRs also help him coordinate oversight care with his home health agencies. Dr. DeLuca says that EHRs enable him to access an entire patient history quickly and easily, allowing him to keep better track of his patients and help them take better care of themselves.
