|EMR (Electronic Medical Record) refers to a medical information system in which all medical information is recorded electronically without any correction. It replaces the traditional paper-dependent medical recording with the help of information technology.
In EMR, all kind of medical information - including health conditions, medical history, diagnosis results, medical interviews, statements, prescription & treatment, drug responses, hospitalization/discharge records, etc. - is recorded electronically. It is a necessity to establish the ubiquitous medical environment, which the recent medical industry aims at.
