This review attempts to address the question: is the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) our best friend or sworn enemy in the context of Clinical Governance and Laboratory Medicine? It provides a brief overview of the history and development of Clinical Governance before going on to define an EMR. It considers how EMRs could assist in delivering quality care in laboratory medicine. A number of outstanding issues regarding EMRs and electronic health records (EHRs) are identified and discussed briefly before the author provides a brief outlook on the future of clinical governance and EMRs in laboratory medicine.
