What is EMR?

Today I came across a great series of videos talking about EMR. The coolest part is the way that they’re presenting the EMR info using a whiteboard. I’ve always loved this type of video. In fact, there’s a whole series of these videos and so I’m going to post a new one each day this week for your enjoyment. Plus, I have a feeling that they’re going to drive some interesting conversation as we head towards the new year.

The first video tries to answer the question “What is EMR?” Pretty basic, but it’s only 2 minutes and may be needed in some situations (ie. older doctors and EMR). If nothing else, it’s fun to watch the drawing.

More of these videos to come. Too bad they don’t have one about the popular topic, the difference between EMR and EHR.
