EHRs benefitting the medical world -Avontix



 
 Electronic Health Record is the systematically collected information that is stored in digital format and is accessible to authorized people across different health care providers. An EHR is not just restricted to one health care provider’s office but it is a comprehensive data that is gathered from all the health care organizations that provide services to a patient. The information in the EHR can be created, managed and accessed by authorized staff across all the health care organizations and this helps patients to move their health records along with them wherever they require medical help.

  Importance and benefits of Electronic Health Records:
  Information availability:  The patient information is readily available when and where it is required.  Health care providers have remote access to the information and this helps them to access records in  case of emergency.

 Improved quality care: As physicians have access to complete health information at a click, they can provide better quality care to patients. In situations when a patient needs his physician but is not at the same place as the physician is in, he can contact the doctor over the phone and the doctor can access the patient records and give appropriate directions to the patient until the patient visits him in person.

  Effective decision making: The Hospital management software used in EHR can help in effective decision making regarding patient care because the comprehensive data like clinical data, diagnostic information and treatment summary is available to the physician at his fingertips and he can make efficient and effective decisions while treating a patient.

 Continuity in services: The EHRs help in the continuity of services provided by health care professionals even at the time of emergencies like natural calamities or disasters. Unlike the physical documents that can be lost due to damages at the time of disasters, the EHRs come handy in such cases and provide valuable information to the health care providers.

 Enhance in research: The vast resources of data regarding patients across states and varied illnesses give ample scope for studying and evaluating medical practices being followed, drugs and devices that are being used in treatment procedures.

  Cost effective: The charts and documents prepared manually are not only space consuming but also a costly affair because they need space for storage and safeguarding and also people to manage them. But, with the Hospital management software, it becomes economical to save and retrieve all the data electronically.

 With so many advantages of moving towards electronic health records, it is obvious that going forward it becomes a necessity to maintain EHR in all countries.

Location isn’t a Matter for Coding and RCM -Avontix

The technological developments in the healthcare management industry have facilitated and increased the outsourcing of medical coding and RCM among many healthcare facilities.
