9 things you can do to get better care. #7 - Ask your doctor or nurse if they use health information technology. Electronic medical records help track and share your medical information with your other health care providers. Tracking information electronically, rather than on paper, means that the information your doctors need is available all the time, no matter where you are. This can reduce errors and unnecessary tests. Visit HealthIT.gov for more info or Careaboutyour care.org.
