Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is a set of records about a patient’s medical
history, presented in a digitized format. EMR can be called as the electronic or
digital version of the tradition medical information about an individual. EMR
tracks a patient’s health and medical details in computerized form. It consists of
lab test, results and reports, medications prescribed, treatment plans, referrals,
health care instructions, alerts, educational literature, and so on.

What EMRs offer to Doctors
EMRs, unlike traditional paper charts, render themselves to be accessed
instantly by medical service providers at anytime from any location within a
health care system. Clinicians are offered the vital advantage of being able to
gather various information about any individual at one place at the required
point in time. Electronic medical records software track data from different
locations, making them available to multiple persons who work for the wellbeing of the patient.
Inconsistencies in the manner of storing and updating charts between
departments of a health center or between different health centers are avoided
altogether by using an Electronic Medical Record. It relieves the doctor from
having to wait for the chart to understand the case and then take necessary
action. Thus, patients are saved from the waiting period, enabling them to get
prompt, timely, and appropriate treatment. Doctors get more time, ease in
understanding the patient’s necessities, and comfortable decision-making and
treatment alternatives.

Doctors’ Perspective about EMR
As EMRs allow doctors to track crucial information over time, they can quickly
determine which patients require preventative screenings, check some
parameters such as blood pressure readings or vaccines, and apply an overview
on overall improvement in quality of health care within the practice.
EMR software ease the process of patient record-keeping, making it accurate,
and comprehensive. Physicians are able to perform with increased efficiency, as
navigation of patients’ charts and records over digital medium provides
immediate access and flawless quality, from any location.
