A patient's electronic medical record (EMR) is a computerised version of their printed chart. EMR is patient-centred records that allow authorised users to access data swiftly and securely. An EMR includes a patient's medical and treatment history, as well as clinical data collected outside of the provider's office. It can provide a fuller picture of a patient's care. EMR is essential components of health IT because they contain the following information:

  • Patient demographics
  • Notes on treatment progress
  • Vital signs of the patient
  • Diagnoses and treatments for the patient’s medical condition
  • Vaccination dates
  • Allergies of any sort
  • Scans from radiology departments
  • Other test results

One of the most important characteristics of an EMR is that it enables authorised physicians to generate and manage digital patient histories. You can also share this report with other medical professionals. EMR facilitates communication with other health care providers, like diagnostic and imaging centres, specialists, and pharmacies. Thus, they incorporate information from all experts involved in the care of a patient.

Different types of electronic medical records

There are various types of EMR software available today. Three of the most popular ones are:

  • Cloud-based software lets you access it from anywhere with an internet connection. It is usually budget-friendly and can expand as your practice does.
  • On-premise EMR software offers more security control and customisation for your clinic.
  • Specialty-specific software is designed with features unique to medical specialities like dermatology or cardiology.

How EMR software can benefit your clinic

EMR can assist you in providing patients with better and safer care while also providing several benefits to your clinic or hospital, such as:

  • Providing accurate, full, and up-to-date patient information at the time of care
  • Enabling quick access to patient records for better-coordinated, more effective care.
  • Enabling providers to share patient information securely with their chosen doctors to eliminate medical errors and provide safer treatment.
  • Improving communication between patients and medical professionals and increasing the accessibility of health care.
  • Supporting accurate, straightforward coding and billing as well as clear, thorough documentation.
  • Safeguarding and protecting patient data.
  • Assisting doctors in increasing their output and striking a better work-life balance.
