Patients are one of the most underused resources in healthcare. Patient know their health more than anyone else. With the increase in use of EMR Systems, particularly web-based EMR Software, which is also called Cloud EMR or SaaS EMR, it allows physicians to interact with patients online.
Patients can access their own records that are made available by physicians by using the Patient Portal portion of their web-based EMR system. This allows physicians to take advantage of patient knowledge to improve quality of information in their web-based EMR system.
