Health care providers have the responsibility of maintaining the patient’s records. It is their sole responsibility to ensure that the medical records are safe, and they are only available and accessible to individuals who are authorized to handle them. One of the key issues that surround the EHR is the issue of integrity.

Other measures such as audit trail should also be implemented as a way of maintaining data integrity. The organizations can observe the above measures and maintain integrity while still upholding quality services.
