-Paper records are episode-oriented with a separate record for each client visit.
-Key information, such as allergies, may be lost from one episode to the next, jeopardizing patient safety.
-Only one person can access a paper record at any given time. Therefore, health care providers waste time looking
for paper records and treatment may be delayed.
-Different versions of the same information may be stored in several places.
-Paper records cannot incorporate diagnostic studies that include images and sound, nor do they make use of
decision support systems.

The mere implementation of an electronic medical record (EMR) does not guarantee that benefits will be
achieved. Which of the following can affect data integrity?
1. System failure
2. Data analysis
3. Data downloading

Question 22
Type: MCSA
Which of the following statements about meaningful use is correct?

Question 26
Type: FIB
_________________________ would permit the uniform capture of data required to build a longitudinal record
comprised of integrated information systems from multiple vendors.
Standard Text:
Correct Answer: Data exchange standards
Rationale : Data exchange standards would permit the uniform capture of data required to build a longitudinal
record comprised of integrated information systems from multiple vendors. Most CPR data are structured, yet
additional formats can be linked to the system offering additional data.
