Abstract : Computers are used for a variety of purposes in clinical management. They are used to store data of patients using electronic medical records (EMR): it requires a careful analysis and decision of the clinician along with the software personnel in designing, refining and maintaining electronic medical record system. Many kinds of data can be stored, retrieved and analysed, which helps in clinical care, communication as well as research. EMRs can be networked to hospital information system (HIS) in which data from different locations can be accessed and used as with EMRs. Security issues would become important for both EMRs and HISs. In addition, information technology and computers can be used to access scientific information from the Internet using PubMed and other sources. © 2008 Diabetes India.
