An Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is a computer-based or digital version of a patient’s paper medical record used by physicians, nurses and administrative staff. EMR Administration for the Health Office Professional is designed to introduce you to the concepts, knowledge and skills you will need to be successful as a Health Office Professional. Health Office Professionals play an important role in the patient flow of every health care office.
