Digital health records are transforming family care in Ontario

Dr. Mehan describes how going paperless is providing faster family care.

Dr. Upender Mehan, Family Physician at the Centre of Family Medicine in Kitchener, Ontario talks about the benefits of using digital health records. Working in family medicine, Dr. Mehan serves a broad range of patients from babies to the elderly, from refugees to patients with mental health problems and addiction. The ability to access real-time updates on patients from all points of care, like lab results, hospital discharge summaries, digital images and  more,  means he can more quickly diagnose and provide treatment based on the facts at hand.
