Electronic Health Records

Electronic Health Records

Electronic health records have been created for 64.1 million people in Iran (80% of population), according to Deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi.
In certain provinces, particularly the less developed ones such as Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari and Khuzestan, more than 85% of residents have been given electronic records, he said, adding: “At present, Tehran has the lowest coverage rate compared with other provinces,” Salamat News reported.
“The Electronic Health Record system is a prerequisite for the Health Ministry’s family physician project, and we are working hard to expand its coverage to 100% as soon as possible,” Salamat News quoted him as saying.
E-records allow every care provider to be alerted in case of a patient’s allergies or any other critical information recorded during previous treatment, and therefore it can prevent many medical errors.
