Back in the old days, manual management of data was one heck of a job especially for hospitals. Saving in even a slight bit of wrong information could take someone’s life or even led to firing of any employee. Thanks to the modern day technology, nothing is difficult with the innovations of computers and softwares. In this article I am going to talk about revolutionary software that has made the medical practice management super easy for everyone out there.
First of all you must know the main difference between these two terms on which our whole article is based.
What does EHR means?
EHR stands for Electronic Health Record. It means that this software allows electronic sharing of the records of different patients with other medical providers and medical applications. The main aim of this software is to work up for the overall health of the patient. One example of this EHR software is that the patient and the doctors can see the lab test results and history on computers with the help of internet. Not just that, patients can also chat with their doctors and they can also schedule the next appointment online.
What does EMR means?
EMR stands for Electronic Medical Record. As depicted by the name, this software helps in revenue patient’s records. Basically it is a digital version of paper chart which has all of the medical history of a patient. EMR software is usually used for the diagnosis of disease or treatment by the doctor for a particular patient.
