Team USA: Olympics EHRs for Athletes
Bravo. The US Olympics Committee is also on board with EHRs! SV
The United States Olympic Committee announced today that, for the http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.giffirst time, it will use electronic medical records (EMR) for managing athlete care. The USOC will use GE’s Centricity* Practice Solution, an integrated EMR and practice management product, to manage the care of more than 700 athletes competing in the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games as well as for 3,000 additional records maintained by USOC staff. The technology will replace pallets of paper records historically shipped by the USOC to the Games and will provide doctors with faster access to athletes’ medical records– ultimately supporting the doctor’s ability to provide more targeted care.
