Are EHRs the same as electronic medical records? What other names are EHRs commonly known by?

You might come across several different names for your digital health information, including electronic health records (EHRs), electronic medical records (EMRs), and personal health records. Though the names may vary, they all contain information about your health status and history.

In addition, some healthcare providers might not use any of these specific terms. For example, they may refer to your 'health information' or 'health summary.' No matter the term used, all this information is valuable to MS research efforts.
