1. PATIENT PORTAL

Patients can now see the state of their health profile and interact with their physician through encrypted e-mail and messaging. Patients can schedule or reschedule appointments right from their online portal, as well.  This saves countless hours for your staff and also cuts down on missed appointments. Direct communication allows the patient the ability to ask questions in-between visits.  These questions can assist the patient in understanding directions from the physician during their appointments and improve health care outcomes.   Often patient portal is imperative, and an important part of the EHR experience for both the provider and the patient.  The patient is the most critical person in the achievement of quality health outcomes because without an engaged, motivated, and informed patient health care progress is hard to achieve.  The portal allows us to keep the patient engaged, accountable, and not discouraged due to the non-accessibility of critical health care data and results.

2. REDUCE ERRORS

HealthIt.gov published a national survey of doctors who were in favor of Meaningful Use offered important evidence in their findings that 63% reported fewer medication errors, 60% decrease in near-miss medication event. According to a recent national report prepared by the Institute of Medicine, between 44,000 and 98,000 deaths occur in the United States each year as a result of medical errors in hospitals alone. Approximately 7,000 deaths each year are attributed to medication and prescription errors. Sadly, most of these deaths could have been prevented with the use of EHR and adhering to protocol and guidelines. When you pause and think about each step of the prescription journey and the amount of information that is exchanged through multiple medical professionals and facilities, you begin to understand how easy medical errors are committed. There is a solution! EHRs are designed to flag and alert clinicians on potential errors!

3. RISK MANAGEMENT

EHR through the reduction of several kinds of errors, such as; omission, communication errors, non-compliance to policy, slow information exchange, communication with the patient, staffing inefficiencies, technical failures, or antiquated policies, EHR can help reduce future medical errors and medical malpractice costs. Your EHR system will alert and remind you in many circumstances when prescription errors are being made, letting you know if your too soon or past due for performing critical tasks.  In addition to tort reduction, EHR will reduce unhappiness due to scheduling errors, delays in admissions, reduction of duplicative information and billing.  EHR is a modern necessity of reducing the inherent risks and cost inefficiencies in health care.

4. CARE COORDINATION

Imagine the amount of information in the patients’ medical history? The medical history, for just one patient, being seen added to and amended by various healthcare providers is enormous. Now multiply that by thousands and think of the complexity. EHR helps physicians compartmentalize and take snapshots of the patients’ condition(s).  In addition to this snapshot, the detailed information from the past is readily available to add to or augment when needed.  Do you need to update a patients’ current medication list and have it follow the patient to their other providers and future appointments for a patient to review before their next appointment, EHR is integral in making this happen?  Do you need to need to send real-time information to a critical consult on your case?  Do you need to review treatment for a patient that you gave them five years ago?  With a click or two, this information will be right in front of you.
