This is significant in that it allows the sharing of patient information on a worldwide scale, improving care. This is leading a national trend, which is currently motivated by HIT Meaningful Use legislation which provides incentives for civilian physicicans to adopt EHRs. Not that the adoption is without challenges. The usability of EHRs is also an ongoing concern.
