The CII has produced a report examining how to shift the medical profession and insurers towards sharing electronic health records (EHRs) to improve access to insurance for consumers.
The report outlines what work needs to take place in order to build trust in EHRs, to avoid the insurance profession having to make underwriting decisions and decide claims based on paper reports from GPs.
The report, which was produced in collaboration with SAMI Consulting, explains how digital medical records could speed up the underwriting and claims handling process. The report outlines four things that need to happen to allow medical professionals to share digital medical records.
