Emergency Medical Hologram
The Emergency Medical Hologram are programs that feature in Star Trek.
It possesses one of the Federation's most extensive medical databases, containing information from over 3,000 cultures and the personal experiences of 47 specific surgeons. The program itself is built on an adaptive heuristic matrix, pioneered by Dr. Zimmerman, which allows the EMH programs to learn and adapt quickly to new situations.

- The Emergency Medical Hologram was created by Michael Piller and Jeri Taylor where it made its first appearance in Star Trek: Voyager episode "Caretaker" (1995).
- According to A Vision of the Future: Star Trek Voyager (1998), the producers based the idea on the hologram character Moriarty, who achieved self-awareness in The Next Generation, and considered introducing the concept of the EMH in a seventh-season episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, but this was not followed up.
