Electronic Medical Records (EMR) vs. Electronic Health Records (EHR)

What is the difference between an EHR and an EMR, or even CPR?

Not much, if any.  The world of medical practice software is constantly seeking new ways to describe the various options out there for doctors.  However, not many can keep all of it straight, so everyone just uses what they feel to be the most popular acronym.  At Health Probe, we tend to use EMR, electronic medical records, or sometimes EHR, electronic health records.

Why an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) System for My Practice?

We recommend that you be informed about what you are actually getting with an EHR, and what you are paying for it...just try not to get too hung up on the jargon.
