Digital technology and mobile platforms connected to the web have enhanced significantly our ability to share information. Medical records represent a set of data that is rich in content and value to the patient and the team providing medical care.  Digital health care infrastructure, in the form of electronic health records (EHRs), enables the exchange of patient information between all the players, eliminates duplication of tests, and accelerates diagnosis and treatment. Today‚Äôs implementation of EHRs still faces some hurdles. Carlo Reyes, MD will present the current status of the EHR industry and share some of the challenges that need to be addressed for full implementation of an electronic based system.
