Patient data that once was stored in file cabinets on paper is now put into an electronic medical record or EMR. Patient healthcare information in an EMR can be stored, transmitted and access by healthcare facilities allowing them to offer patient support remotely as well as work together with other physicians. Electronic medical records security is created through government regulatory compliance of the healthcare facilities.
