Main motive of any hospital or clinic is to provide the best patient care. Patient care can be drastically improved using electronic medical record. An electronic medical record (EMR) is a computerized medical record created in an organization that delivers care, such as a hospital or physician's office. The costs of storage media, such as paper and film, per unit of information differ dramatically from that of electronic storage media. When paper records are stored in different locations, collating them to a single location for review by a health care provider is time consuming and complicated, whereas the process can be simplified with electronic records. When treating a patient another major thing is to monitor the drug or fluid administered to the patient. Better and safer drug delivery systems will be the one with automatic or an intelligent infusion pump system. Thus automatic intravenous infusion will efficiently reduce medication and administration error.
