Over the past decade, technology has made a lasting impact on the way doctors and hospitals improve their caregiving capacity to better serve patients across the globe. One of the latest healthcare technologies sweeping across the country is the implementation of electronic medical records (EMRs). In its simplest definition, EMRs are designed to make healthcare better, safer and more efficient across the board for both the patient and the practitioner.
