The EMIS National User Group (EMIS NUG) is a non-profitmaking organisation set up to improve the use of health information. To achieve this we support EMIS users to get the best possible use out of their computer system by providing training and educational materials. It is a registered charity and operates completely separately from EMIS.
The group was formed in 1991 following a meeting of interested parties (largely drawn from the small number of Local User Groups that existed then) who thought a national user group would be useful. Since 1991 the group has grown considerably and it now has over 1400 member practices, representing GPs, nurses and practice.
