Electronic Health Records

The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) believes that every family physician should leverage health information technology, which includes electronic health records and related technologies needed to support the patient-centered medical home (PCMH). These capabilities can support and enable optimal care coordination, continuity, and patient centeredness, resulting in safe, high quality care and optimal health of patients, families, and communities.
