New! Electronic Medical Record Stamp for Physicians The Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Stamp is a resource tool that family physicians can use in office visits with their Parkinson’s patients. The EMR stamp is a word document template with a series of prompts that the physician can pose to their patients in order to gather information. The EMR Stamp is a summary of a 15 minute family doctor office visit. The EMR Stamp benefits physicians because it provides a framework upon which they can tailor their visits, making visits more efficient by prompting the patient for Parkinson’s signs, symptoms and treatment.
