The federal government's first-ever health information czar, David J. Brailer, MD, PhD, made electronic health records a national priority in 2003. In Dr. Brailer's words, "People die because of paper."
Up to 98,000 deaths per year are attributed to medical errors, many of which are linked to mistakes that resulted from filling paper prescriptions. With EMR, Jefferson can be a part of the solution, proactively diminishing these unnecessary deaths.
EMR supports JUP's patient care approach - putting patients first and improving operational efficiency. It also gives Jefferson a competitive edge, ultimately attracting more patients to our practices. And with EMR, those patients will be evermore safe in our capable hands.
