An EHR application is viewed by some as a subset of an EMR (Electronic Medical Records), where it is patient-owned and accessed medical records and the latter is the overall system for managing patient data, clinical decision support, controlled medical vocabulary, order entry, computerized provider order entry, pharmacy, and clinical documentation within a practice or other healthcare delivery entity.
For our purposes here, we adopt the general usage of making no distinction between the terms, and regard the EHR as simply the patient data management application, including lab analysis requests and results and related data. It often serves as the central application in a physician office or other healthcare delivery setting, and may be linked to other systems or entities, such as diagnostics labs or their LIMS/LIS
, HHS, CDC, billing services, etc.
