Electronic medical record software which some refer to it as EHR (Electronic Health Records) is a hospital clinical database management system called DMS. This software aims at improving the patient care by providing efficiency, fast retrieval of data, increased productivity and revenue and reduced running costs. An EHR solution lies at the heart of any computerized health information DMS that should essentially provide high quality patient care for all intents and purposes, reducing medical errors, delays and oversights in patient treatment.
OpenMRS (Open Source Medical Records Systems) applications are an online program that has a web-based integrated database DMS that has no limitations unlike the previous two. It tracks down patient‘s treatments, laboratory data management, reporting and analysis, pharmacy stock management and offers decision support. This is a very adaptive, inexpensive and accommodative and sometimes, a free system. This system allows modification by its users in order for it to fit their requirements and capabilities due to its versatility. It may also be used offline in case there is a problem with the internet or when experiencing low-speed internet connectivity since it has a synchronization feature that allows integration, thus, work done offline gets incorporated with the online database.
