Now in Effect: Affordable Care Act Requires Electronic Medical Records

Reducing Paperwork and Administrative Costs

First regulation effective October 1, 2012
Health care remains one of the few industries that relies on paper records. The new law institutes a series of changes to standardize billing and requires health plans to begin adopting and implementing rules for the secure, confidential, electronic exchange of health information. Using electronic health records will reduce paperwork and administrative burdens, cut costs, reduce medical errors and, most importantly, improve the quality of care.
