An Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is "a digital collection of medical information about a person that is stored on a computer. An electronic medical record includes information about a patient’s health history, such as diagnoses, medicines, tests, allergies, immunizations, and treatment plans. Electronic medical records can be seen by all healthcare providers who are taking care of a patient and can be used by them to help make recommendations about the patient’s care" (National Cancer Institute, NCI Dictionary of Cancer Terms: Electronic Medical Record, Accessed September 2019, Electronic Health Records (EHRs) are designed to share information with other health care providers, such as laboratories and specialists, so that authorised clinicians and staff can create, manage and consult across more than one healthcare organization.
