The EMR captures and presents important clinical information about the patient. Symptoms, physical examination findings, treatment plans, and medication histories can be stored and accessed. Vital information from all departmental systems can be integrated and delivered to clinicians at or close to the point of care. Electronic Medical Records: A Guide for Clinicians and Administrators answers the important questions concerning the selection and implementation of an EMR system. This comprehensive work provides physicians and administrators with a solid understanding of what electronic medical records are and do. Electronic Medical Records answers the many questions that arise when evaluating, purchasing, and using an EMR system. Also included is the latest information on resources, Web sites, services, and vendors.
