The electronic health record (EHR) and electronic medical record (EMR) are vital parts of the healthcare system today. The practice management system (PMS) provides data from a single medical practice (EMR), and this record becomes part of the vast medical universe known as the electronic health record. (To find out more on this topic see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Practice_management_software) Physician PMS systems offer complete practice management from patient to financial information.
The PMS system manages the day-to-day operations of the practice. The doctor, nurse or assistant enters information into the system and has access to information such as patient demographics including name, address and insurance information in addition to authorizations and patient forms.
