What is lifelong clinical record?
A lifetime clinical record (LCR) is a component of a digital electronic health record system (EHR) that is used to support modern medical care and assessment. It represents a clinical database or a central data warehouse for patient records.
An LCR is used in dedicated hospital information systems such as Siemens INVISION. In general, the purpose of an LCR is to enable doctors and other health professionals to look at a patient's long-term medical history, including any results from the various types of procedures, tests, diagnoses, etc. that the patient has received experienced during his life. Obtaining these results requires familiarity with the interface of a particular EHR system in order to access the LCR and other related resources.
