Medical students develop EHR system targeting homeless, uninsured
Modern Healthcare

Medical students at Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland have developed and implemented an electronic health-record system for homeless and uninsured residents who receive care at Baltimore Rescue Mission’s free clinic.

Based on hospital medical records, the system monitors what would be recorded in a typical patient encounter, including a history of a present illness; medical, social and family histories; results of a physical examination; and medication information.
