EHRs have long been touted as a key element for achieving more efficient healthcare. One of the primary aims of EHRs was to improve data flow within healthcare systems, to enhance day-to-day operations and patient care. With EHRs becoming more integrated and technologically advanced, and an increasing number of governments supporting their nationwide implementation, EHR uptake has grown significantly. Nevertheless, several issues, including a lack of standardization, interoperability, data safety, and user acceptance, have emerged as obstacles for their wider uptake.
