EPR (Electronic Patient Record) facilitates research on patient data by aiding in creation of disease-specific databases and data mining. Additionally, it saves paper and reduces errors caused by writing.
The poor use of EPRs in Indian government hospitals, has led to a huge loss of patient information. An important reason for poor use of EPR has been that the number of patients visiting the hospitals is huge and resources are limited.
Software that aids in real time conversion of speech to electronic data with in-built language translators is needed. This will facilitate capturing the patient information to a format that can aid in database/repository creation of several diseases. Tools for analysis of captured information will help in disease diagnosis and better patient management.
