Transcript

  • 1. MedicalTranscriptionsService
  • 2.  The difference between EMRs and paper records is the difference between clunky file cabinets and cloud storage.  Digitizing records makes them more accessible and transferrable.  And despite whispers of dissatisfaction there are several advantages of working with EMRs.
  • 3.  Easy storage and no change in quality over time  Comprehensibility  Easily accessible  Better Security
  • 4.  EMRs make it safer and easier to share medical records.  Vital information, such as blood type, drugs prescribed, and medical history, are easy to share at the time of need.  During times of emergency EMRs are life savers and can help in quick medical decision making.
  • 5.  Most physicians find it difficult and painful to work with EMRs.  Doctors struggle to work with EMRs due to its complex interface and tough navigation.
  • 6.  Doctors find the “click and drop down” capability of an EMR as a great feature. This leads to errors in the documentation process.  According to a survey the habit of copy and paste has been adopted by 78% of the physicians, who find it better than hand copying procedures which had oodles of error.  As reckless copy pasting can lead to duplication of data.
  • 7.  Audit your medical practice’s documentation procedure regularly.  Invite someone outside of your medical practice to review your clinical records.  Customize the templates you get from your vendor.  If the EMR systems coding algorithm is updating E/M codes very often then you need to keep an eye on the coding calculator algorithms.
  • 8.  Customization is a time consuming and complex process.  Some of the EMRs have customization features.  several template customization specialists who can help in customizing EMRs and better align them to the clinical workflow of practices.
  • 9.  There is an increased need for granularity of medical data and specificity in documentation.  It can be next to impossible for physicians, to manage, the almost unfair demand for pristine documentation.
