Advantages - Electronic Health Record

  • Qualify for up to $44,000 in government stimulus money (if implemented by 2011, paid over five years) Only if your EHR system is CCHIT certified!
  • Avoid government penalties set to begin in 2015.
  • Going paperless will improve office efficiency. Pulling medical charts will be a thing of the past. And the issues related to charts that are misplaced, misfiled or at another location will also be a thing of the past. Patient information is at your fingertips and just a click away.
  • Automating lab and prescription procedures reduce administrative tasks and decreases errors, including alerting pharmacists to drug-to-drug interactions or allergic reactions.
  • Improved collections and cash flow because of the increased efficiency in claim submissions with correct coding edits.
  • Automated insurance verification can be scheduled one to two days prior to patient’s appointment, confirming active insurance coverage, alerting you to changes in coverage, and allowing you to be aware of self-pay patients immediately.
  • Reduced operating costs – eliminate the cost of transcription, purchase and storage of paper charts and forms, etc. No more printing, mailing, or faxing letters, correspondence can be sent directly from system.
  • Improved clinical reporting to insurance carriers.
  • Ability to provide in-depth practice analysis by provider, location, procedure, diagnosis, and insurer.
  • Personalized patient education.
