EMERSE (Electronic Medical Record Search Engine) is an intuitive, powerful search engine for documents in the electronic medical record (CareWeb) including dictated and typed reports (progress notes, radiology and pathology reports, etc). It is an academic project lead by David Hanauer and managed by MCIT.

EMERSE offers multiple options for creating complex search queries yet has an interface that is easy enough to be used by those with minimal computer experience. EMERSE is ideal for retrospective chart reviews, data abstraction, recruitment, and translational research. It is also used for quality improvement and hospital operations. In operation since 2005, EMERSE has been used for hundreds of research studies.
