Technology changes and improves so quickly these days that it is hard to keep up. This is especially true in healthcare. Twenty years ago who would have thought you could use an iPad to document patient visits or take vital signs and download them directly into your EHR. Today, we are hearing about tools like Google Glass that may allow a physician to wear a headset that shows your patient chart or enables the doctor to conference in another provider while talking to you in the exam room.

In several recent studies, physicians have said that they want access to a full EHR on an easy to use mobile device. These solutions are now available, and it is one of the factors driving what Black Book Rankings is calling the year of EHR switch.

In a series of short videos, Dr. Tom Giannulli, Chief Medical Information Officer at Kareo, has been talking about that state of EHR and ways you can use your EHR to engage patients and improve their health. In his third video he talks about what he sees happening in the future with EHR and mobile technology.
