Langley Division of Family Practice

Electronic Medical Records

Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) can improve both office efficiency and reduce the time it takes for doctors to receive their patients’ lab test results as these can be put directly into the system instead of being shared by standard mail or fax. The Langley Division has been active in promoting the use of EMRs, and most local family practices have now adopted them. To optimize the benefits of EMRs, we have created a community of practice, which is a group of doctors who seek out ways to use the power of technology to benefit patients and family practices.
