Electronic Health & Medical Records

You say “Electronic Health Records” I say “Electronic Medical Records.” What is the difference? It turns out there is a difference, and at ONC we are working on changing the conversation around each of those terms. We’ll highlight recent news articles and online conversations where the author has used the terms in ways that we believe are limiting or in ways that cause confusion, and will work to provide clarity around how each term should be used to move America toward a future where our health is managed digitally.
