EHR stands of Electronic Health Record (EHR) and EMR stands of Electronic Medical Record. EHR/EMR define as systematic collection of patients’ electronically-stored health information in a digital format. The digitally-stored healthcare information is shareable across different healthcare settings. It typically includes information for instance medical history, radiology images, billing information, medications & allergies, patient demographics, and others. It improves the quality & coordination of care (medical services).
The key benefits are improved patient care, better data tracking over time, streamlined sharing of updated & real-time information and timely reminders for patient screenings & preventative checkups.
