Abu Dhabi: Patients will soon have easy access to their medical records through a new Electronic Medical Record System (EMR) that will be implemented in six hospitals and 12 clinics across Abu Dhabi, announced the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA).

According to Saif Al Qubaisi, Managing Director, SEHA, the system will be completely implemented in all SEHA facilities by the end of 2009.

"The new EMR system will help ensure patient information is available when and wherever a SEHA provider needs it. This system will noticeably accelerate the management of patient records. It will always be up-to-date and complete," said Al Qubaisi.
