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.

"differences" between these terms, check out the following web

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.
