Electronic Health Record- is a secure and confidential electronic system that collects and stores health information.  It is made up of many connected components, which together deliver health care providers key patient information at the point of care.

Alberta Netcare- is Alberta’s provincial Electronic Health Record. 

Personal Health Record (PHR)- is an electronic, lifelong resource of health information needed by individuals to make health decisions. Individuals own and manage the information in the PHR, which comes from healthcare providers and the individual. The PHR is maintained in a secure and private environment, with the individual determining rights of access. The PHR does not replace the legal record of any provider. (American Health Information Management Association).

Electronic Medical Record- is a computer-based patient record specific to a single clinical practice, such as a family health team or group practice. In clinical settings where there are a number of doctors, nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, and other health care professionals, EMRs can improve communication between them and support productivity. EMRs can also improve communication between health care providers and patients, positively impacting health outcomes and patient safety. (Canada Health Infoway)
