The futures of EHR and EMR hold a lot of promise in terms of enhanced patient care through the use of digital technologies. The arrival of COVID-19 demonstrated the importance of digital solutions in addressing the number of challenges that healthcare institutions face. Sophisticated AI-backed and IoT-driven electronic medical records and health records showed how patient records can be seamlessly entered and processed in near real time.
Among many trends, Internet of Things (IoT) devices are becoming more prominent. In fact, the global market for IoT-enabled healthcare devices is expected to more than double from $50 billion in 2020 to nearly $135 billion by 2025. As a result, we can anticipate significant growth in accessibility, integration, IoT devices, and EHR/EMR interoperability.

The edition also features articles from David Kelly, Director Operational Excellence at Piedmont; Tinu Tadese, Chief Medical Information Office, Lake Health (University Hospitals) and Taylor Hays, Director, Medical Compliance Monitoring, University of Miami Health System, who shed light on the evolution of the EHR and EMR space, significance of electronic medication administration records (eMARs), and digital patient-reported outcome measures for monitoring of patients.
