Electronic Medical Records (EMR) or Electronic Health Records (EHR) refer to the electronic copy of all the health-related data of an individual which is collected, managed, and consulted by authorized physicians and medical practice staff within a healthcare organization. EMR Software acts as a digital cabinet for the storage and sharing of medical history, medications, lab results, treatment plans, and even billing information of all the patients individually. All the data is collected in a centralized database which can be accessed from multiple devices and multiple locations, making everything mobile and easily accessible.
