There are countless EMRs on the market today, with many newcomers popping up all the time. When choosing an EMR and converting your entire practice from paper to electronic, records, you want to be sure you are using a reputable company that you can truly trust with your patient information. The company you choose should be reliable, with a long track record that can be verified by many other dermatologists. Steady growth and a desire to constantly update and improve the software is key, as well as applying user feedback to actively advance the systems effectiveness. Ask for referrals and client testimonials; make sure you know the software you are choosing is going to be worth it.
When spending the time and money implementing an EMR, it is important to purchase a system that is designed specifically for your specialty. Choosing a dermatology specific EMR will ensure that implementation goes as smoothly and quickly as possible. The EMR will come with an optimal set of templates that have been designed and tested in actual dermatologist offices. As well, the EMR should contain anatomical diagrams that are common within the scope of a dermatologists practice. Even more importantly, the EMR should be tailored specifically to your practice, with the ability to upload charts, macros, diagrams, or any type of document your office is comfortable using. When choosing an EMR, is important to choose a company that works with its existing and new clients to continually update the program and release updates based on user feedback.
Fast, Accurate Charting
One of the most important aspects of using an EMR program in a dermatology office is to increase efficiency and accuracy in patient charts. There are many ways that patient information can be input into an EMR database. It is important that the EMR your office chooses to use gives users the ability to enter patient information in many ways. This ensures that you and your office staff can figure out which types of data entry will allow for the fastest, most accurate charting.
Why use an EMR?
With the future of medicine heading towards paperless offices and utilizing advanced technologies, many dermatologists and office staff are considering making the switch from paper charts to electronic medical records. In order to have a successful and efficient practice these days, electronic medical records are a must.
Here are a few key reasons why more and more physicians are making the switch daily:
- EMR saves time. Gone are the days when a clerk stares at a wall of paper files, rifiling through the stacks to retrieve patient histories. Now patient records can be retrieved in seconds with a few clicks. When a visit is completed, the patient’s file is safely stored within the computer and can be pulled up quickly whenever it needs to be referenced.
- EMR reduces errors. Within a few short seconds, a couple of clicks, and a bit of typing, patients records can be completed quickly and accurately. Dictation software (such as Dragon) can also be used to quickly and accurately dictate notes directly into the system as well. In addition, e-prescribing alerts the physician to any drug interactions or allergies the patient may have.
- EMR helps provide better patient care. Since use of an EMR saves time and reduces errors, naturally it leads to better patient care. The time saved retrieving and reviewing charts can now be spent face to face with the patient. If you are concerned about typing on a computer with your back turned to the patient, the use of a tablet pc or an ipad seamlessly takes place of a paper style chart in your hands. Detailed patient history notes can be entered before the visit via a patient portal, or typed or dictated into the program during the visit and reviewed with the patient at the end of the visit.
