Understanding The Importance Of EMR

EMR stands for Electronic Medical Records—a computerized medical record that allows a hospital to pull out a patient's files to consult it, modify it or update it. Instead of searching through multitudes of physical files in a drawer, the EMR will make history taking a much easier task for doctors, nurses and other health workers. Although paper records are still the most popular types of medical records, they are now being given a maximum of seven years of storage space. This means that in seven years, most of the paper records of hospital patients must be inputted into digital forms.

Digital records: why they matter

The most significant advantage of EMR is the abolition of the dreaded paper works. Doctors, nurses and health workers alike have always hated writing a patient's health history because of the time and effort it takes away. However, it is a widely known and accepted fact that patient history is a big factor in salvaging a medical case. But if a hospital has an electronic medical records system, then history-taking would be a lot easier.

A lot of companies now offer electronic medical records systems mainly because of the realization that digital records are here to stay and they are not going anywhere. With the EMR systems available in the market, you can upload and access medical records wirelessly and enhance the collaboration between hospitals. Digital records will also simplify the integration of health care automation tools.

And because the records can be accessed among partner hospitals, there is less need for re-admission and paper transactions are minimized. Electronic medical records are also updated with real-time information, which means that clinicians can always access the current health records of their patients in no time. This significantly improves care management and patient satisfaction.

Also, electronic medical records use a system that is primarily designed to make it easier for doctors, nurses and other health workers to review their patient's history and improve dramatically the quality of diagnosis and treatment. Health histories are always largely dependent on the patient's memory of their past illnesses and medicines. With an EMR, there is less amount time spent interviewing the patients about their medical history and instead, focuses on the current situation. And with a few clicks of the keyboard, any health worker will have access to a patient's medical history.

Making use of electronic medical records will also improve the efficiency of insurance companies to examine the health records of their patients, and provide them with the benefits promised to them. EMR is an easier way to authenticate claims and other insurance-related processes.

Although there is still some apprehensions regarding the functions of an EMR, time is slowly answering such apprehensions by presenting the wonderful benefits of having electronic medical records.
