Electronic Medical Records
Electronic medical records (EMR) utilize the advances and ubiquity of technology to create a digital database of patients’ comprehensive medical records. This places each patient’s entire medical history in one easily accessible location that any of your physicians can access if needed. Like any other medical records, though, EMRs are accessible only by authorized users and are actually considered more secure and confidential than traditional written records.
Electronic documentation ensures that your medical records are clear and complete, eliminating any confusion over illegible handwriting. The benefits associated with EMR also help provide patients with a higher quality of care, as your doctor can provide highly personalized services after studying your complete medical history. At Princeton Orthopaedics, we are proud to use electronic medical records for improved efficiency, organization and care when treating each and every one of our patients.
