Electronic Medical Record


Electronic Medical Record (EMR) are digital versions of the paper charts in clinician offices, clinics, and hospitals.

Electronic Medical Records contain notes and information collected by and for the clinicians in that office, clinic, or hospital and are mostly used by Health Care Providers for diagnosis and treatment.

Electronic Medical Records are more valuable than paper records because they enable providers to track data over time, identify patients for preventive visits and screenings, monitor patients, and improve healthcare quality.

Electronic Medical Record is considered Protected Health Information and Personally Identifiable Information by most entities.
