electronic medical record (EMR)
Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is a record of health data. The term is often used interchangeably with Electronic Health Record( EHR) or Electronic Patient Record( EPR).
The EMR record is a patient record created for patients during inpatient and outpatient hospitalizations that can be used as a data source for the EHR record.
The EMR data set is created in medical institutions such as hospitals or clinics and is maintained by physicians and medical professionals. Because the EMR dataset can be shared across networks, it is an important resource for all healthcare providers involved.
