EMRs is the coming of age tech that revolutionized data storage and access to make it more efficient and less costly. Current ways of storing EMRs is by setting up servers that can handle vast amounts of information. The problem with that is there is a lot of information that needs to be stored, millions of records for an entire nation like the UAE and that means a lot of servers in different locations. Now the world is becoming more digital, paper-based health records are rapidly being replaced with electronic medical records (EMR) for the many advantages that it holds. Specifically in the UAE, 96.7% of all hospitals have initiated a process to transform to a paperless environment. UAE hospitals will also become vulnerable to these breaches now that it is turning digital.
