Electronic Medical Record update


Electronic medical record example

In recent years and thanks to the advancement of technology, there has been a transition from paper records, so widely used in hospitals and medical offices, to electronic records.

With which it is possible to make patient care more efficient and even represents in many cases a decrease in operating costs.

The term “electronic medical record” encompasses two systems:

The medical health record and the electronic medical record, although both are related, there are some differences.


The Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is essentially a digital medical file.


For use by a single healthcare professional, such as a doctor, dentist, therapist or single clinic or hospital


Among the advantages of the EMR are:


  • The possibility of detailed and easily accessible tracking of the patient’s medical history.
  •  Improving safety by having a detailed record of the medications received.
  •  Keep track of appointments with an impact on patient attendance.
  • Help the patient and their family to become involved in care and treatment.


According to a study published in the American Journal of Medicine:

The EMR reduces medication expenses, improves efficiency in radiological diagnosis, and optimizes the billing process

The Medical Health Record or EHR (Electronic Health Record) is very similar to the EMR.


With the difference that it is designed to be shared with other health providers.


Whether it be from the same organization, such as a hospital group or with associated service providers such as laboratories or cabinets.
