Digital Health Records Are Seen As Keeping People Healthier

Digital health records can make you healthier according to a Nova Scotia woman who's part of a pilot project. 

Alexa Thompson tells CHSJ News having the ability to go online to keep track of such things as her test results and blood pressure has turned her situation around completely with her taking far better care of herself. 

Thompson has suffered from osteoarthritis for years and admits she was in pretty rough shape at the end of last year but gaining more control over her health has empowered her with a big change for the better in her attitude.

Thompson also keeps track online of what she eats and how much she exercises. She adds it will likely save the healthcare system money in the long run because she won't be as sick.
