An electronic medical record is a computerized legal medical record
created in an organization that delivers care, such as a hospital and doctor's surgery.
Electronic medical records are a part of a local stand-alone health information
system that allows storage, retrieval and manipulation of records.
In the United States, 38.4% of office-based physicians reported using fully or partially
electronic medical record systems (EMR) in 2008. However, the same study found that
only 20.4% of all physicians reported using a system described as minimally functional
and including the following features: orders for prescriptions, orders for tests,
viewing laboratory or imaging results, and clinical notes.
