Abstract: Healthcare systems have improved tremendously since the advent of electronic medical records (EMR). Many commercial and open source EMR systems are already available for healthcare providers the world over. However it is noted that EMR systems are rarely used to record patient rehabilitation data. Rehabilitation treatment is of great importance to developing nations, especially to countries that have suffered from armed conflicts or other disasters. An EMR system which supports rehabilitation record keeping would be greatly beneficial to Sri Lanka considering the number of war victims receiving treatment at local hospitals. This paper reviews the feasibility of configuring an existing EMR system to record Patient rehabilitation data, and highlights key issues developers should address to bridge the gap successfully.
