If your healthcare practice needs to grown and make revenue in a constantly evolving landscape, it is integral to use every available tool to your advantage. One such key tool is the use of an EMR (Electronic Medical Record) software or system. An EMR software can offer your hospital/healthcare practice with the following five benefits.
- Enjoy space savings
As you would know, paper charts can take up a lot of space and as they keep piling up, it will become necessary to look for another storage facility to hold the older chart volumes. One solution for this problem is the EMR software, as it has the ability to completely replace paper charts. You will be able to use the free space for another office function as well eliminate an endless list of office supplies like chart expenses, dividers and paper.
- No more lost charts
Looking for chart can become a chore. Since filing is a human component, there is a good chance that files can be misfiled. There is also the possibility of a file being in another location. This could put restrictions on the flow of work. With an EMR system in place, you can eliminate the chance of a lost or misfiled chart, while enhancing your internal operations. Through an EMR, one chart can be made electronically available to several employees at the same time.
- Easy to decipher chart notes
The medical practice is fast paced and anyone who works in this field will understand that at times, handwriting can be hard to read. Sometimes the pace is so quick, that notes written during this phase becomes hard to read and understand. With an EMR software, the legibility issue is eliminated because notes are no longer written but are typed or picked from a predefined system with multiple choices.
- Faster results
Waiting for a laboratory or a radiology report can take time. An employee will have to print out the reports and then place the paper chart in a location for the physician to review. However, with an EMR software, the return time on such reports can be greatly reduced along with a sharp reduction in employee hours. This is possible because reports are accurately placed in the respective chart for the physician to review.
- Improvements in coding and increase in compliance
The world of billing and coding is constantly changing. An EMR system can help you keep up with the changes as the system gets automatically updated, as per the changes made by the government and insurance companies. With proper coding in place, you can see improvements in reimbursement. Your physicians will also have more time to see more patients and your office will be able to accurately bill for procedures without any duplication.
Apart from the above benefits, there are several other advantages of using an EMR system. Not only will you see an overall improvement in your workflow and reimbursement, but you will also see your office running more efficiently.
