Electronic Health Record Resources Added to Special Queries
The NLM® Special Queries page now includes a link to a new subject page on Electronic Health Records (EHR).
The US Department of Health and Human Services defines an electronic health record as "An electronic record of health-related information on an individual that conforms to nationally recognized interoperability standards and that can be created, managed, and consulted by authorized clinicians and staff across more than one health care organization."
The MEDLINE®/PubMed® Search & Electronic Health Record Information Resources page offers a PubMed search including subject terms and other keywords. Areas of coverage include implementation, attitudes, beliefs and use, data privacy, health data standards, and consumer access to the EHR and personal health records. This search strategy retrieves literature in many languages and from more than 27,000 PubMed citations, including research from many countries.
The resources page provides links to other electronic health record resources such as links to the US and international government agencies, associations, foundations and publications.
