New Mexico - All medical records in New Mexico will soon be filed electronically.

A federal grant of $405,000 will be used to decide the best way to implement such a system for the state's new Medicaid program.

New Mexico representatives say, electronic medical records are an important step towards improving the efficiency and quality of health care.

That's because doctors will have instant access to a patient's entire medical history.
