Like any other industry, the technological revolution has also taken over healthcare. Medical practices are shifting from paper-based methods to electronic methods. Electronic medical record (EHR), also known as electronic medical record (EMR), is a digital version of a patient’s paper record.
Modern healthcare systems depend on software that generates EHR. In 2019, the percentage of healthcare systems adopting EHR is 87%. However, its implementation was difficult for many companies. EHR systems are complex because they bring medical and administrative units under one roof. Healthcare software testing services ensure that EHR systems are working properly.
