Electronic Health Records (EHR) are electronic replacements for traditional paper based patient records. EHR’s provide real-time records that make information available instantly and securely to medical practitioners and administrative staff when they need it. EHRs contain information such as a patient’s medical history, their diagnoses, medications, treatment plans, immunization dates, allergies, radiology images, laboratory and test results, along with any other information that may be relevant to the patient’s care. EHR’s are also referred to as Electronic Medical Records (EMR).
