Electronic Health Records: Convenient for the Patient

Thinking strictly from the point of view of a healthcare facility, we understand the idea of switching to Electronic Health Records (EHR) can be overwhelming. The process can take awhile if you’re trying to manually and individually scan each document. But, if you’re located near Wilmington, Philadelphia or Trenton, EHR scanning can be easily handled by Resource Data Management.

 

While the scanning process is being taken care of, you have time to focus on how the upgrade can benefit your patients. Every EHR system is different, so depending on the package you choose, benefits may vary. In this blog, we’re going to cover some of the ways upgrading to an EHR system can enhance your patient’s experience.

Universal Access

Depending on the EHR system your facility chooses, your patients may have access to their medical records off-campus. This makes it easy for them to login from home and continue communication easily with their healthcare providers. EHRs work to make the healthcare system more seamless and efficient.

Transferring Between Departments

It will be easier for your patients to transfer between departments for various specialists and treatments. It decrease any hassle associated with multi-department medical records. An EHR will follow the patient from department to department, not the other way around. A patient won’t accumulate multiple medical records from a slew of different medical professional. They’ll have one record that can be added to with each visit.

Email & Phone Reminders

Some EHR systems are capable of sending email or text message reminders. Others have created mobile apps, also accessible on tablets. This means people are able to handle prescriptions, lab results and more, right from their phone. People are accustomed to having a wealth of information at their fingertips, making EHRs the perfect solution. With the on-the-go lifestyle of the typical American, EHRs are convenient.
