Patients and Caregivers

Better Care through Technology

We all want quality healthcare that is accessible and affordable. Patients want minimal hassle and the knowledge that health information will be kept private and secure. Revolutionary interactive technologies have ushered in a new era where this can be a reality.

Health information technology helps patients get better care through confidential use of electronic health records (EHRs). Thousands of people are using electronic tools, including personal health records (PHRs), which allow more direct communication with providers. Building on this foundation, Health IT has the potential to dramatically improve public health and the quality of care for all Californians.
