Electronic Medical Record [EMR]

« Back to Glossary Index

An EMR is a narrower view of a patient’s medical history, while an EHR is a more comprehensive report of the patient’s overall health.

Electronic medical records (EMRs) are digital versions of the paper charts in clinician offices, clinics, and hospitals. EMRs contain notes and information collected by and for the clinicians in that office, clinic, or hospital and are mostly used by providers for diagnosis and treatment. EMRs are more valuable than paper records because they enable providers to track data over time, identify patients for preventive visits and screenings, monitor patients, and improve health care quality.
