Electronic Medical Record or popularly known as EMR is commonly used in the medical community in the recent era. Medical professionals, physicians and other health related professionals access EMR for recording and retrieving patients’ details on a daily basis. EMR has been a vital technical component in these health organisations and it is a step forward from traditional way of recording patients’ details on papers. The aim of this academic project is to assist the physicians, therapists and nurses in the chosen Rehabilitation Centre in Saudi Arabia with designing and building such an electronic medical record application. An EMR application was designed, developed and tested among the staffs of the chosen organisation. Technologies used were mainly open source and they were Oracle 10g, Hibernate, Servlets, JSPs and programming language used was Core Java. The developed prototype was finally saved on cloud and by using cloud services it was hosted and a link was produced so that users could easily access EMR without downloading the actual software. The respondents evaluated the application and found it to be user friendly and also felt that implementing a similar application would assist them store and maintain data in a more efficient manner. Recommendations and future work is outlined along the critical analysis and a justification of how the research’s aim and objectives were met.
