    • Introduction to EMRs
      What are EMRs?
      An Electronic Medical Record is usually a computerized legal medical record created in an organization that delivers care, such as a hospital and doctor‘s clinic.
      What are EHRs?
      The Electronic Health Record (EHR) is a longitudinal electronic record of patient health information generated by one or more encounters in any care delivery setting
      • Electronic Medical Record (EMR) – contains information from a single organization

      client server based
      proprietary
      non-interoperable
      no connectivity to patients
      monolithic
      Electronic medical record systems lie at the center of any computerized health information system. Without them other modern technologies such as decision support systems cannot be effectively integrated into routine clinical workflow.

      6-12 months, depending on:
      Organization size
      Number of interfaces
      Complexity of documentation tools
      Complexity of EMR
      Number of modules
