Electronic Medical Records are computer-based medical records of a patient. They are being used increasingly by hospitals as they offer certain advantages over conventional paper records. Electronic Medical Records allow storage, modification and retrieval of records. Electronic Medical Records are readily accessible and greatly reduce the likelihood of error in either entry or interpretation of medical information. Health care providers and major hospitals around the world have adopted the use of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Systems.

The greatest advantage of switching to EMR Systems is safety. With the availability of EMR Systems, hospitals are able to guard a patient’s personal information. They reduce errors and save time and therefore reduce the large number of deaths attributed to medical error. EMR Systems have different component software packages, including those for patient’s medical records, appointment scheduling, billing and patient education. Electronic Medical Records are of great use for physicians who want to keep themselves well-informed about the welfare of their patients.

They are a collection of patients’ medical history within a period of time. EHR Systems are intended to make work in health care industry easier by making information more accessible and efficient.
