« Status of EMRs in Canada and Barriers to Adoption | Main | HEALTH CANADA UPDATE: Software Regulated as a Class I or Class II Medical Device »



While EMR and EHR are often used interchangeably, there is a difference. EMR is essentially a practice management (suite of) software, EHR is the program integrating health information across boundaries. So focusing on the "Information Highway", that is to say on EHR, without focusing on EMR is like stocking up on cookbooks without a single pot in the kitchen. But it may explain why EMR implementation seems to have stalled.
