ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Continuity of Care Record. Continuity of Care Record is a core data set which is created or updated at the conclusion of a health care encounter. It contains the most relevant past medical history as well as current health status, treatments and future health care directives of a person. Reduction of costs, minimizing error, involving the patient in their care, patient safety in the hand off of patients and enhancing health care are just few of its advantages.
