Technology Article Review Being new to the health care professions I am not very familiar with most of the technologies used today in our health care system and have also been fortunate enough to not need much care beyond a checkup here and there. However, being very interested in science I know how great the benefits of medical technology advancements can be to our nation and the world. I am choosing to focus on the technology of electronic health records (EHRs) as I feel they will greatly help patients and physicians once the transition from paper records is completed. There are many articles on this topic, but I chose to use one that incorporated a bit of the new health care law that recently when into effect. That law is the Affordable Care Act (ACA) which is currently working to reform our health care system. The article The Affordable Care Act and Electronic Health Care Records: Can Technology Help Reduce the Cost of Health Care? is a good place to start when it comes to discussing desired affect EHRs could have on our health care system as well as the more likely reality. I chose this article because it discusses the costs of health care and how EHRs affect those costs. In The Affordable Care Act and Electronic Health Care Records: Can Technology Help Reduce the Cost of Health Care? Fontenot brings up the importance of health care information technology (HIT) being used with the ACA as a lot of the information gathered initially will be in the digital form and can easily be used as a reference in the future (Fontenot, 2013). The argument she proposes is how to make EHRs and the use of HIT more cost effective. When the use of HIT was pushed towards the mainstream in the 1990s it was found that HIT did not cut costs as promised, it actually increased the overhead of many practices (Fontenot, 2013). While having digitized records would dramatically decrease the amount of paper used and
