ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS
developed in the 1960's and 1970's to manage and store patient information, and enhance medical providers’ ability to care for their patients.
Electronic Health Records/Electronic Medical Records (EHR/EMR) systems may track and record patient demographics, medical history (allergies, lab test histories, current and past health conditions, etc.), and encounter summaries. Additional functionality offered by EHR/EMR systems may include, but are not limited to: appointment scheduling; provision of after visit summaries/medical history to patients; some billing functions; and reporting and information sharing with other points of care such as pharmacies, labs and other healthcare providers.
