Today, 96% of hospitals and 78% of physicians use electronic health records. Nearly seven in 10 hospitals give patients the ability to view and transmit their health information online. Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey is one of them. The hospital’s electronic system allows users to look up symptoms, find doctors, make appointments and review test results. It also links patient-generated data from personal fitness devices and mobile apps to electronic medical records.
