Many hospitals and healthcare providers are now providing patients access to their electronic health records (EHRs). This is in effort to improve patient and provider communication and treatment adherence. Because of recent regulation from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), it is important for providers to not only provide access to an EHR, but that they also promote its meaningful use. This is a feature that will be accessible through SimStay.
Players will be able to use the interface to access their medical record without having to navigate to a separate website. Hopefully the access to this feature will both improve the likelihood of a patient accessing their information and also provide a reason for them to use the game. Perhaps a patient finds no value in actual gameplay, but they are interested in accessing their medical record, by promoting access through SimStay, the patient may be exposed to additional features that they would have otherwise missed.
