What is EMR &EHR?

An Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is a digitized version of a patient’s medical records. These electronic medical reports contain vital information about the patient such as their personal details, pharmacy orders, radiology resukts, laboratory results, discharge/transfer orders and any other such medical information related to the same. It’s a more sound and systematic way of keeping medical records.

An Electronic Heath Record(EHR) goes a step further is more like a comprehensive data bank of all the medical reports relating to a patient from various healthcare providers stored in either chronological order or sometimes even in the form of graphs and charts. This makes it easy for the doctors to analyze the data regarding the patients treatment history in the event of an emergency instead of sifting through mountains of paperwork.

The main difference between EMR and EHR is that EHRs allow a patient’s health record to move as an when required across different organizations whether it is other health care providers, specialists, hospitals, nursing homes, and even across states.
