Keeping track of the massive amount of information coming through your medical practice on a daily basis can be quite the hassle—let alone handling all of the information for years to come. So, which method is best for your company?
One of the records management options that a majority of healthcare organizations have adopted within the past few years is an electronic health record (EHR) system. These systems have the ability to greatly improve the quality of care provided to your patients.
Benefits of Electronic Health Record Systems
In the following video, the Health Science Channel receives input from multiple physicians on their thoughts regarding the implementation of an EHR system within their organizations:
Although the purchase and implementation of an electronic health record system is an expensive undertaking, the benefits to your practice far outweigh the costs. Some of the advantages described by the doctors depicted in the video are:
- Receiving reminders for patient testing and examination, and alerts when patients qualify for clinical studies
- Improved readability—gone are the complications of having to decipher another person’s, or your own, handwriting
- Availability of information—ability to see notes from other physicians and nurses, look up specific information applicable to multiple patients (i.e. a certain drug that multiple patients have taken), and access certain systems from anywhere with an internet connection
Another benefit not mentioned in the video is that the risk of committing medical malpractice is greatly reduced with an EHR system. Any prescriptions that do not interact well together or important notes regarding a certain drug are brought to the attention of the person prescribing the medication(s).
