Electronic Medical Records (EMR) System has the following advantages both for patients and medical practitioners:
It improves the overall quality of patient health care by providing physicians a quick access to patient's up-to-date records and other related clinical information that can help attain a timely and careful clinical assessment.
It greatly reduces the risk of misfiled or lost clinical information.
It saves space. Paper medical charts which are records of patient's clinical data such as demographics, vital signs, diagnoses and treatment plans take relevant and limited clinic space overtime. The EMR system which stores all of patient's integral information removes these paper charts completely.
It eliminates unnecessary expenses for office supplies like papers and shelves.
It can be accessed anytime and anywhere with internet connection.
It advocates paperless transactions to reduce costs and have a greener workplace.
