Contribution to eHealth in SA

EMC’s solutions deliver a complete patient-centric view of information beyond the electronic patient record – regardless of source, location or format across the continuum of care. Whether transitioning to or looking to achieve the full value of an EPR, EMC Integrated Patient Record solutions enhance existing patient information by aggregating, sharing and optimising patient information from any health information application or content format.

EMC’s electronic management system is central to the Gauteng Department of Health’s modernisation project, which aims to connect all information and activities across the province, and make it available across all systems, hospitals, as well as to primary care providers and even patients.
