What’s the difference?
EMR = Electronic Medical Record
Simply put, an EMR is a replacement to your paper charts WITHIN the four walls of your office.
HIE = Health Information Exchange
Health Information Exchange (HIE) is the term used to describe large-scale electronic communication of patient information between unaffiliated healthcare providers.
EHR= Electronic Health Record
If you think of an EMR as what is INSIDE the four walls of your office, think of EHR as an EMR that is connected to other healthcare providers through HIE.
HIE provides a more efficient electronic replacement to traditional phone, fax and paper communications among healthcare providers
