An EMR is the digital equivalent of a paper record at a doctor’s office containing general patient information including treatment and medical history collected by an individual medical practice. Using a simple analogy, EMR is a chapter in a patient’s medical history, while EHR is the whole book with the full story, reference index and illustrations.
EHR is a software built to securely document, store, retrieve, share and analyze information about individual patients. One of the key features of an EHR is the way the information is created and shared. Authorized providers can create and manage health information in a digital format and can share such information with other providers across more than one healthcare organization.
