Electronic Medical Records Electronic Medical Records

An electronic medical record (EMR) is a computer-based patient record specific to a single clinical practice, such as a family health team or group practice.

In clinical settings where there are a number of doctors, nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, and other health care professionals, EMRs can improve communication between them and support productivity. EMRs can also improve communication between health care providers and patients, positively impacting health outcomes and patient safety.

EMRs can improve health outcomes and patient safety, as well as increase efficiency and productivity.
