Podcast: eHealth leaders on EHR/EMR
VANCOUVER – The
CanadianEMR web site has launched a series of podcasts that examine
significant issues concerning the Electronic Health Record. Coordinated
by CanadianEMR founder Dr. Alan Brookstone (pictured), a British
Columbia-based physician and eHealth consultant, the podcasts centre
around discussions with Canadian leaders in the field of eHealth.
The latest podcast weighs in on the convergence of the EHR and EMR. The
EHR is typically considered the Hospital, Regional or Provincial level
record, while the EMR is a physician specific tool used to record
information in a doctor’s office.
Currently, there is a mismatch between systems, and the discussion
focuses on the issues and challenges surrounding the general inability
to electronically exchange information between systems.
