The Electronic Medical Records issue is quite complex, because there is no standard yet, and thousands of competing applications try to conquer the big clients. Some are Open Source, some are free, many are sold. A few countries and states have decided to implement a single EMR application, to lower costs and focus all the development effort in a single product. However, not even Socialist countries have reached that goal.
The Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is the centre of many new health businesses. Health care is now 95% direct and 5% remote. In the near future, it will be the other way around.
The need for competition in this area is possibly paramount to achieve safety, usability, acceptance and other quality parameters.
