The London 2012 Olympics is the most technologically advanced Olympics ever held. That’s because it won’t be only scores and stats that will be tracked by technology, but also the health of athletes. Team USA’s trainers and doctors will employ electronic health records for tracking the health of the athletes.
This throws light on the importance of health IT. This is a field that is transforming healthcare worldwide. The Olympics example is proof that health IT can be applied in universal as well as local contexts. This holds hope not only for athletes but also for common people. Electronic health records can significantly help to improve the common person’s understanding of health. All the medical information about an individual will be stored in one place. A medical team can go through the records and ensure the individual gets the right care.
Team USA’s initiative
Team USA is inviting the public to be part of this health IT revolution. You can play a part by getting yourself an electronic health card copy, understand the details in the health record and check it for accuracy. This will ensure more quality care since patients would not always have to go through the same tests or fill up the forms whenever they change insurance companies or consult the doctor.
Coordinated healthcare is what electronic health records are all about, and London 2012 offers a golden opportunity to check this.
