Historically Important Electronic Medical Record Systems
The following electronic medical record (EMR) systems are among the first kind ever developed. Each of the following systems added key information to our current understanding of how EMRs can improve the cost, quality, and efficiency of the care delivered within the modern health care system.

|Efforts to Outcomes (ETO®) software was the result—a solution that would allow staff to record their efforts at the point of service delivery and relate those efforts to client outcomes down the road. Real-time reports would provide actionable data to inform service delivery and program management, and build a foundation for continuous internal improvement.Social Solutions Global (SSG), the creator of Efforts to Outcomes (ETO®) software, is the leading provider of outcomes management software for the human services. ETO equips nonprofit and public sector organizations to drive performance by making data useful at all levels, from frontline staff to executive leadership.

|Developed by Edward Shortlife at Stanford University as a consultation system that focused on appropriate management of patients who have infections. Research conducted at Stanford Medical School on therapy selection for patients with meningitis found that MYCIN gave an acceptable therapy in about 69% of the cases, which compared favorably with that offered by experts in infectious diseases. MYCIN was a factor in improving research and development of knowledge-based systems and the commercialization of the rule-based approach in a variety of nonmedical fields.
