News-Antique.com - Oct 27,2009 - San Antonio, Texas – October 11, 2009 - for the past years, many hospitals and healthcare facilities integrated have reported a measurable increase in their revenue since they have started to integrate the Electronic Medical Records in their managerial working system. So how did the transition from paper-based practice to the fully-automated computerized electronic EMR have increased the income of the facility? HealthTec explains the reasons why.
Firstly, the electronic medical records can increase the facility’s revenue by enabling the capture of all charges. Contrary to the EMR, many services that were performed are lost or are not billed because the staff may have erroneously entered a data or billed lesser that expected when the paper-based method is used. The EMR can greatly increase the revenue by capturing all of the charges provided by the facility and its physician.
The EMR uses system billing codes that are acceptable by all insurance agencies. HealthTec Software Inc.’s Electronic Medical Records software is highly customizable to meet the ever-changing needs and demands of insurance companies. More so often, insurance companies are changing codes to facilitate ease in workflow, with that the EMR can easily adapt to the changes made, thereby avoiding the possibility of losing a big sum due to unrecorded services.
Another thing is that the incorporation of electronic medical records software can also increase the staff productivity by spending more time in rendering quality patient care top the patients rather than on documentation and transcribing of physician’s orders. Without the EMR, the healthcare team who are responsible for the primary care of the patient – nurses and doctors -will have to spend a few minutes writing down orders and transcribing the orders, often times, nurses are having difficulty in deciphering the handwritings of some physicians leading to errors in medication and in implementation of interventions. Confirmation of the order will also take another time before it can actually be carried out.
The Electronic medical records software can actually process penmanship no matter how the order is written. Also progress notes are easily generated in the EMR, giving the physician more time to be spent on the Emergency department of the hospital or the consultation rooms, rather than sit on the nurses. Station and write down notes. Nurses can also spend more time in bedside care rather than in charting as the EMR as the patient’s progress and work activity for the day are all generated in the EMR.
HealthTec’s electronic medical software also increases the services offered by the facility with its health maintenance reminders feature. The EMR provides computerized alerts that will prompts the patient and the physician about scheduled follow-up visits like removal of sutures or just plain check-up of the patient’s recover progress.
