The charge capture functions can store lists of ICD and CPT codes, as well as the charges associated with procedures and supplies.
Once the physician and staff become used to the system, they usually find that they can see more patients throughout the course of a day.
With external hard disk backup, a physician could store the records of all patients in the history of the practice.
Despite the disadvantages, the advantages of the EMR system in most cases far outweigh the disadvantages.
When electronic medical records are corrected, the record must be entered (through the log-on process) and then an addendum can be made to correct the information in the record. The addendum is initialed by the person who makes the correction.
The system can be programmed to initiate reminder and confirmation calls to patients.
Reminder and confirmation calls play an important role in increasing a physician’s show rates, and when they are automated, the medical assistant is free to complete other duties.
The prescriptions produced by the EMR system make obliteration or alteration very difficult, and most pharmacists can detect changes made by patients that void the prescription.
Something that is generally or widely accepted, favored, or practiced is prevalent.
An electronic system should require much less physical space than the system of rows and cabinets of medical charts that has been used.
One of the greatest advantages of an EMR system is its flexibility, because records can be accessed from virtually anywhere.
The more the medical assistants work together as a team, the more successful they will be in getting the electronic medical record system off the ground and running; this, in turn, will help them learn the system more quickly and grow more comfortable with its use.
Because patients’ records are critical in emergencies, the electronic medical record proves itself valuable in such situations.
The EMR is an electronic record of health-related information about an individual that can be created, gathered, managed, and consulted by authorized clinicians and staff within a single healthcare organization.
According to surveys, the average purchase and implementation cost of an EMR system is approximately $33,000.
Patient data are captured and processed into the system, which is specialty specific, so that the terminology and patient care treatments are compatible with the physician’s medical specialty.
The target year for electronic health records for most Americans is 2014.
The EMR is compiled by the staff at a single organization involved in the patient’s care.
Although the online backup system may cost slightly more than other methods, it is easy to use, because there is no external drive to carry and no CD or thumb drive to put through the process of downloading data. Still, most IT professionals suggests that clinics maintain two separate backup methods.
The Nationwide Health Information Network has seven priority goals designed to enhance the patient care experience for those using an electronic health record system.
