Investing in electronic health record (EHR) systems is a huge undertaking. Like any big project, it can appear daunting. However, moving from traditional filing and recording methods to EHRs and other digital tools, thereby streamlining processes in your practice, can be one of your best investments.
At Raintree Systems, we design platforms to optimize operations in healthcare facilities. We ensure that you achieve the highest return on every investment you make across all your processes, from scheduling appointments to billing patients. Of course, there is more to a successful practice than revenue generation and EHRs are crucial to ensure administrative efficiency and a positive experience for patients.
The Rise of Connected Health
Technology is now bringing health services into the home. As more people have access to the internet, practices are looking at ways to use it to bring services directly to patients in their homes. Electronic management systems are the perfect way to quickly and easily transmit EHRs to the patient, for example.
Savings for the Business
Electronic management systems automate processes, which saves practices a lot of time and money. Submitting documents and managing files electronically can be done in a fraction of the time it used to take when all processes were paper-based. Storage and management costs also shrink. Pulling out a file from an EHR database is easy, and the patient experience is greatly improved.
Savings for Patients
With EHRs, patients need never complain about duplicate tests. EHRs are all kept in one centralized location, which reduces errors and redundant requests. In addition, a single location for all documents gives practitioners easy access to all information about their patients, helping them to make more informed diagnoses.
Fires, floods and other physical harm can damage traditional records irreversibly. With good EHR systems, the danger of losing entire filing systems is greatly reduced, if not virtually impossible. Copies of files can exist on multiple servers at a fraction of the cost of a similar paper system. Raintree Systems also uses the latest security technologies for its systems, making them less susceptible to network breaches.
Adopting an EHR-management software is a great step forward. The benefits increase as you introduce additional digital tools. With rising demand and new opportunities for such software, moving over to EHRs is a sound decision. For all your EHR and management software needs, Raintree Systems is just a call or email away.
