Electronic Medical Records Makes Easy
What are benefits of electronic medical records? Formerly, medical offices have struggled with medical record documentation, as well as filing and retention of literally volumes of paper records. They have been stored in costly medical record storage cabinets and when the volumes of records outgrow the office space, they are purged and sent to off-site storage.
A major benefit of electronic medical records is that record maintenance and storage problems go away. All medical histories, medication lists, chart notes, labs, x-rays, reports, letters, and any other form held in a paper record is either documented directly into the electronic medical records or scanned.
The electronic medical records virtually eliminates the cost of reams and reams of paper, the off-site printing of forms such as encounters or super bills, in-house printing of schedules, and the zillion copies of insurance cards and scripts. Some practices even decrease their payroll costs by implementing electronic medical records. Without the paper record there is no backend record maintenance, no finding, filing, or re-filing charts, which equates to less labor requirements.
More hospitals and healthcare organizations are making the switch from inefficient paper records to fully functioning electronic medical records software suites. The result is more power to the patient, lower costs for the hospital or healthcare organization, and hopefully more accurate and timely data. And when electronic medical records are couple with remote access to those records, patients truly do have their health history at their fingertips.
With electronic medical records, your visit can be made easier from the time you check in to the time you walk out of the clinic. Scheduling systems that can be added in to the electronic medical record software pull all of the patient information, giving front desk staffs the information they need to quickly process your visit.
