EHR is more commonly known as an electronic health record. Some may also refer to it as EMR software; however, there is a distinct difference between the two.
Then, if you’re interested in setting up an EHR software system for your company, consider the experts at Orases. They offer an array of solutions for you to get the software you need for your organization.
What Is EHR Software?
Simply put, EHR is an electronic version of a patient’s medical history. So if a patient sees a provider, they can easily pull up these records to reference them to give the patient the proper care.
Notes within an EHR typically cover the patient’s medical history, personal information, previous clinical care, their provider, progress notes, medications, previous vital signs, medical history, and more. This data is processed automatically to help streamline the workflow of clinicians for more informed recommendations.
EHRs make it incredibly easy to help providers make better decisions about patient care. Here are some of the ways patient care can improve through an EHR:
- Limited medical errors: Since sometimes providers and clinicians need to see many patients daily, errors are inevitable. EHRs help limit the number of mistakes made by improving the accuracy of these records.
- Health information availability: EHRs also help make all health information readily available to clinicians and patients. This helps improve patient care because they can access and track their healthcare information themselves.
- Accuracy of records: Records are more accurate when tracked through an EHR. The clarity of these records helps reduce errors that can occur.
Overall View of Patients
Providers with access to EHRs tend to have a better overview of their patients. This is because these records are patient-centered, so they can track patient information and data over a longer period, which gives providers a lot of information to reference to provide a more accurate diagnosis.
Coordination of Care
Sometimes, patients go to different providers for different reasons. Regardless, this can make it challenging to track patient records. Digital records allow providers and clinicians to more easily track patient information, even after they may see another provider. This system helps coordinate visits and treatment, and makes diagnosing patients easier.
Another beneficial aspect of EHRs is that information is shared across the board, which allows clinicians to gain access to information from pharmacies, other providers, emergency rooms, and more. These charts make decision-making easier for clinicians.
Having EHRs streamlines the process of seeing a patient. Paperwork tends to be very slow, but EHRs offer fewer forms, saving more time. This gives clinicians more time to see their patients and allows them to see more during the day. Prescriptions can be sent to pharmacies quicker and cut wait times nearly in half.
Having data centralized to a single source is helpful. Not only can providers and clinicians reference their patient’s data, but this gives them the power to compare it to global and population averages. This helps provide a diagnosis and assists in treatment decisions.
Offering EHRs is often more cost-effective. Digital records reduce administrative necessities, allowing your staff to take care of other issues around the office.
While the systems may not be completely error-free, they can certainly limit the number of errors that may occur. Since tracking has become more standardized and simple, patient documentation does not need to be deciphered, leaving less room for mistakes.
Benefits for Patients
- Tracking Health Information
- Ease of Access
- Locating Data
- Privacy and Security
One major benefit of EHRs for patients is the ability to track their healthcare information. If everything is located online, patients can access the information they need. This can help them achieve their medical goals, stay up to date, and more.
EHRs can also be relatively easy to access for patients as well. Now that everything is centralized in a single system, patients do not have to worry about calling to get the information they need.
While doctors and other clinicians can compare patient data, it can also benefit patients. Patients who have access to their healthcare information can use that to track their health. In addition, they can see their own data and use it to create healthcare goals.
As a patient, it should be your goal to have your medical information protected. Not only is it very personal, but privacy is important with such confidential information. Unlike paper, EHRs offer a variety of protective measures. One example is the simple password, whereas another is two-factor authentication to help protect your data.
