For the past couple of years, EHRs (Electronic Health Records) have been in the news quite a bit. Beginning this year, if a provider’s office has not switched to EHRs, they will begin to lose some of their reimbursements from Medicare. And as a company that provides EHR scanning in PA, we have kept a close eye on this law and its effects on providers’ offices throughout the area. Here is a brief rundown of some frequently asked questions about EHRs and EHR scanning services.
Q: What are some of the advantages of EHRs?
A: EHRs help providers and their staff members keep accurate and up to date information about their patients. The information is secure and remains confidential but can still be quickly and easily shared between providers, patients and other people who need to have access to these records. They help to improve the quality and accuracy of patient care, and they help reduce costs.
