More South Florida Doctor’s Offices Going Paperless

HOLLYWOOD (CBS4) – The way your doctor stores your files could be a thing of the past.

And while that sounds scary at first, the benefits may out weigh any potential problems.

Dr. Barry Key of Hollywood Eyes in Hollywood has been transferring his system for months and is taking advantage of thousands of dollars in stimulus money set aside to give to doctors who make the change before the 2014 deadline.

“The information is going to be put into a medical bank and a website site and patients can access their own information instantly,” said Dr. Key.

Doctors say a paperless offices promise to be more secure than having files laying around an office.

“If someone really wanted their information and break into my office and get it.”

    Electronic Health/Medical Record (EHR/EMR) if you only knew how much money you have been throwing at this and how inefficient the process has been. Great idea, just poorly implemented.
