What is EHR Software?
Electronic health records (EHR) software assists to computerize the clinical operations of healthcare providers. They offer digital storage of patient charts and enable monitoring of patient demographics, test results, medications, SOAP notes, histories and more.
Electronic health records are also termed electronic medical records (EMRs), computerized medical records, and digital medical records. EHR is the full collection of patient medical records generated and stored at multiple locations.
EHR software collects a patient’s medical history, laboratory and test results, radiology images, allergies, immunization dates, treatment plans, medications, and diagnoses. It enables access to evidence-based tools that providers can use to make decisions about a patient’s care.
The main benefit of an EHR is health data can be generated and managed by authorized providers in a digital format and this data can be shared with other healthcare providers and organizations such as school and workplace clinics, emergency facilities, pharmacies, medical imaging facilities, specialists, and laboratories. In short, an EHR contains data from all clinicians engaged in a patient’s care.
