In today’s ever-changing medical field, EMR systems are essential in establishing and maintaining an optimum level of performance for your clients, staff, and practice as a whole. The newest EMR systems allow you to stay ahead of the game and give your clients the attention and trust they need to be confident in you. How will the latest EMR systems help organize, file, and keep up with all your patients? Here’s how:
Your patients are your #1 concern and should be treated as such. When they feel like they’re your first priority, they’ll put their trust in you and keep coming back to you. To do this, you need to be able to fulfill their patient needs. EMR systems will help you establish and maintain a relationship with the client by:
o Storing and receiving patient charts without hassle
o Easy scheduling and notification of patient appointments
o Storing patient notes: prescriptions, vital signs, labs, etc.
o Using medical billing and charging procedures that are uncomplicated
o Bringing up relevant parts of chart of patient to view
o Securely accessing patient records from any place, at any time, and from any compatible device
All of these functions along with an easy navigation menu will help you access, look up, and chart all the information in one quick, easy-to-do process. More time will be saved and the patient won’t feel as if they are just one of the many patients being treated that day.
Not only EMR solutions benefit your clients, but they will also benefit your staff. No longer will your staff need to search through countless files and numbers to find patient records, charts, and other details. This software will enhance and help your staff access, store, and chart information in a smoother fashion. Your staff will be treated with work-to-do lists, desktop alerts and messages, and immediate access to clinical data. Along with maintaining all of these, it also has multi-user read and multi-user write capabilities which mean your staff can view, enter, and edit client information from different workstations without worrying about interfering with each others data.
EMR systems are also great for solo and group practices. Basic EMR systems will allow you and your staff to scan any paper document and attach those to your patient records and manage dictation tapes and transcribe documents. From this feature, your staff will be able to create, review, edit, and lock patient documents. With fully customizable settings, you’ll arrange data fields that are easy for you and your staff to access. If the basic EMR system doesn’t fulfill your practice needs, you can always get the full-featured system that includes the industry standard HL-7 specification for exchanging data and XML web service connection.
