Electronic medical record (EMR) is a digital version of the paper charts in the healtcare facility. It contains the medical and treatment history of the patients in one practice. Electronic health record (EHR) performs previous tasks, additionally focus on the total health of the patient—going beyond standard clinical data collected in the provider’s office and inclusive of a broader view on a patient’s care.

The sacroiliac joint is located next to the spine, above the tailbone, and absorbs the shock of the motions from the upper body on the lower body. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction can be caused by traumatic accidents, but is most often caused by a change or abnormality in movement in the area – either too much movement, or too little.

Numbness or tingling in these areas can also be a symptom in some cases, but is more rare. If a patient with sacroiliac joint dysfunction feels pain in their lower back or hip, it is likely a result of hypermobility, or too much movement.

  • The Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALYs)
    Although one treatment might help someone live longer, it might also have serious side effects. The Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALYs) is a measure of disease burden, including both the quality and the quantity of life lived. The method helps to measure these factors so that one can compare different treatments for the same condition.The QALY is based on the number of years of life that would be added by the intervention. The main objective of QALYs is to combine morbidity and mortality into a single weighted measure. Thus, a QALY gives an idea of how many extra months or years of life of a reasonable quality a person might gain as a result of treatment.
