What is EMR?
EMR stands for Electronic Medical Records. An EMR contains the medical/clinical information within an individual electronic record. EMR’s go beyond that of normal paper records as they can be more comprehensive and can be easier to link other data such as Clinical Notes, Electronic Billing, Appointments and so forth.
An EMR is also more beneficial than a paper records because
- You can track data more easily (as mentioned above)
- You can flag patients more easily and alert other staff members i.e Allergies etc
- See a great overall history of Clinical History
- Automatically see what a Patient may owe financially
They can also be shared over a network so that other practitioners can see this information easily instead of going to a centralised paper filing system and spending a lot of time searching for the data.
