“Electronic health records are coming to a sports arena near you. A hospital in New Jersey is providing emergency medical services at a stadium that hosts the local major league soccer team. If a person is hurt, they can go to the first aid station, where a team of doctors will treat them. When a person is transported to a hospital, doctors are able to treat them more quickly because they already have the patient’s medical record from the stadium and are notified of any medications that were already administered.”
