Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is a record of health data. The term is often used interchangeably with Electronic Health Record
(EHR) or Electronic Patient Record (EPR). The EMR record is a patient record that is created for the patient during inpatient and outpatient hospital stays and can be used as a data source
for the EHR record. The EMR record is created in medical institutions such as hospitals or clinics and is maintained by physicians and medical professionals. Because the EMR data set can be shared across networks, it is an important aid for all healthcare providers involved.
