A user's group is a type of club focused on the use of a particular technology, usually (but not always) computer-related. Users' groups provides "real life" opportunities for learning from the shared experience of the members and may provide other functions such as a newsletter, group purchasing opportunities, tours of facilities, or speakers at group meetings. MediRecUs provides its members (and sometimes the general public as well) with one or more of the following services:
Internet Web Site
Study groups for MRCP certification exams

Clinical Decision Support systems link health observations with health knowledge to influence health choices by clinicians for improved health care.
CPOE decreases delay in order completion, reduces errors related to handwriting or transcription, allows order entry at the point of care or off-site, provides error-checking for duplicate or incorrect doses or tests, and simplifies inventory and posting of charges.
Disease Management is the process whereby persons with long-term conditions (and often family/friend/carer) share knowledge, responsibility and care plans with healthcare practitioners and/or peers.
Every time a patient receives professional health care services, the provider documents the services. Medical coding is the assignment of the appropriate codes for a claim creation.
