Electronic health records (“EHRs”) are a fact of life in the current healthcare industry, with adoption of EHRs having increased steadily since the early 2000s, and especially in connection to Medicare’s Meaningful Use program.

It is a physician’s duty to maintain access to their records, and this article provides insight into issues surrounding this subject.
