ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS FROM HEALTHTEC SOFTWARE
The trend of keeping electronic medical records has been fairly slow in catching on due to somewhat high costs of the fairly new systems. However, as will happen with time, there are systems available today which are actually very affordable, especially when one dedicates hard consideration to the positives of using such a system of medical records-keeping.
How often does it happen in your practice that health care claims are denied, only to result in the loss of money to the practice and the patient? Often times when claims are denied, the patient simply cannot pay and so the practice loses money and the patient loses potentially critical care. Even when a procedure has not yet been done, the practice loses the future financials of the case already in progress and most definitely loses in terms of time spent by the staff in handling the denial. This is just one highlight in the list of reasons to cross over to electronic medical records, or EMR.
Maybe itís time to take advantage of a system which will inspect your claims before they leave the office, validating the information input for accuracy and viability. This ensures that contracts between insurance payors and the practice are honored and the patient receives the benefits they have coming to them. Maybe itís time to secure you own future by ensuring there are no human errors in the record-keeping of your practice, which can result in ill-prescribed medications or procedures and puts your patients- and your practice- at risk.
Electronic medical records systems generally come with tutoring, or continuing education courses tailored to the needs of your practice. Whether you are installing a new system or upgrading your current system, continuing education can help you and your staff to bridge any gap of knowledge, naturally increasing your dedication to the system. Provided education is also helpful when you add new staff members and donít want to dedicate valuable office time to full system training.
More and more offices are taking advantage of the wide array of benefits that come with a dedicated software program which will integrate with their own particular way of doing business, and also integrate with electronic medical records world-wide. Custom programming is available to enable you to tailor your electronic medical records to the needs of your practice. Never again need you be concerned that investment in an EMR system may pigeonhole you into a way of records-keeping that youíre either unaccustomed to or which only partially works for you. These programs are tailored to your needs, and increased affordability offers you the opportunity to get current and become involved in the future of medical care.
