electronic medical record

(redirected from Electronic medical records)

electronic health record

A computerised record of a person's health “transactions” in the UK, collated from summaries of individual electronic patient records and other relevant data. The ultimate goal is that every person in the UK will have a lifelong, data-protected EHR from birth to death, which will “travel” with them even if they change doctor or move around the country; EHRs will eventually replace paper patient records.
