The article presents information on how the electronic medical records (EMR) has enabled Geisinger Health System to inform physician leaders and hospital administrators about patient conditions and the results of their treatment, information that drives improvements in screening programs for breast and colon cancer, chlamydia and other conditions. With a complete medical record in electronic form, Geisinger can do things such as monitoring and improving the comprehensive care of chronic-condition patients like diabetics.
