Conceptually, the electronic aspect allow then to be shared across healthcare providers, departments, and locations. EHRs and EMRs provide an advantage over paper records by making patient data available instantly in any location and allowing data to be stored and retrieved more efficiently.

EHRs and EMRs can store information, images, scans, and more to provide physicians with a comprehensive view of a patient's medical history, current medications, allergies, immunizations, test and lab results, previous diagnoses, and other relevant information.

In addition to providing patient information, EHRs and EMRs allow providers to better automate and streamline the collection and organization of patient data. Electronic access to patient information allows healthcare organizations to make better decisions, spot trends and outbreaks, manage care quality, and report on outcomes.

EHRs and EMRs can also reduce redundancy and duplicate work, reducing staffing costs and freeing up personnel to spend more time with patients and less time with paperwork.
