What is EHR / EMR software?

EHR / EMR software is a computer system that helps healthcare providers manage patient medical records and automate clinical workflows. EHR systems allow providers to:

  • Create customizable templates for taking notes during patient encounters
  • Generate reports on practice efficiency and compliance with government programs
  • Communicate with patients and staff
  • See patients remotely with telemedicine sessions and prescribe medications electronically
  • Sync information with practice management and billing systems

While the terms EHR (electronic health records) and EMR (electronic medical records) are often used interchangeably, they have slightly different meanings. The primary difference is that EHR puts forth the notion of interoperability, or interfacing with other medical systems to create a comprehensive view of a patient’s clinical information. To learn more about the difference, check out our article, EHR vs. EMR

Electronic medical records represent a huge improvement over the paper-based methods of the past, and open the door to a new world of functionality for healthcare providers. As opposed to first generation EHRs that simply digitized and stored medical records, modern EHR systems act as virtual assistants that organize and prioritize practice workflow. As EHR technology continues to evolve, providers will be able to connect with patients in more meaningful ways and continuously provide better care.

How can an EHR system benefit a private practice?

Using an EHR system can significantly impact a medical practice’s bottom line. Specific benefits of EHR software include:

  • Saving time by automating manual processes like charting and prescribing medications
  • Streamlining physician workflows with scheduling, task prioritization, and communication tools
  • Protecting against data breaches and ensuring HIPAA compliance with increased PHI (protected health information) security measures
  • Accessing patient records from anywhere using mobile devices
  • Reporting functionality that helps providers participate in government-run EHR Incentive Programs.

Another benefit of modern EHR systems is seamless integration with practice management software. This integration eliminates time and errors caused by copying-and-pasting between software systems, reduces the amount of missed follow-up appointments, and speeds up reimbursement.

The cumulative result of these benefits is a medical practice that runs more efficiently, allowing providers and office staff to focus on caring for patients and maintaining profitability.

How does an EHR improve the quality of care for patients?

To be able to provide the best care possible, healthcare professionals need to be able to quickly understand patient histories and maintain efficient ongoing communication with patients about their health and treatment plans.

EHR / EMR software allows providers to use note templates that capture relevant information during patient encounters, and to quickly recall this information as needed. As interoperability between medical information systems becomes more commonplace, patient records are more accessible along the entire care continuum. For instance, having easy access to a patient’s medical history can dramatically improve the quality of care they receive during a visit to the emergency room, when time is of the essence.

In addition to making records more accessible, modern EHRs can help providers significantly reduce mistakes, especially when prescribing medications.

EHR systems also improve the communication channel between providers and patients. For example, the EHR system can integrate with scheduling systems to automatically remind patients of upcoming appointments. Then providers can use patient portals to securely communicate treatment plans, prescription instructions, and other helpful information to patients.

Alongside patient portals, the emergence of telemedicine is making healthcare even easier for patients. Telemedicine sessions allow providers to diagnose and treat patients over the phone or via video chat. Patients can benefit from medical advice from the comfort of their own homes, and save time and money that would have been spent on travel.

How much does an EHR system cost?

The cost of most EHR systems depends on the number of providers using the software and/or the number of patient encounters per month. Additional functionality, such as e-prescribing for controlled substances and lab integrations, can also affect price.

Our pricing is flexible and designed to make sure you get exactly what you need for the most affordable price. We offer both per-provider and per-encounter plans. Visit our pricing page to find a plan that best fits your business.

What is a “certified EHR?”

A “certified EHR technology” (CEHRT) is an EHR/EMR system that has been reviewed, tested, and certified for use in incentive and compliance programs administered by CMS.

The goal of the EHR Incentive Programs, recently renamed the Promoting Interoperability (PI) Programs, is to encourage providers to use EHR / EMR software and to help them find technology that meets program requirements. These programs offer incentives to healthcare providers that use a certified EHR and impose penalties on those who don’t meet standard requirements.

For instance, one measure that can contribute to a medical practice receiving an incentive payment is demonstrating that a certain percentage of their patients actively use a patient portal.

As EHR vendors develop new technology, they submit it to an ONC-ATCB (ONC-Authorized Testing and Certification Body) for inspection and testing. After receiving certification, the ONC-ATCB monitors the technology for continued compliance.

AdvancedMD v12.7 is 2015 Edition compliant and has been certified by an ONC-ACB in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

What is Meaningful Use? Is it still in effect?

Meaningful Use was an EHR Incentive Program that was part of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act that went into effect in 2009. The purpose was to encourage EHR adoption by promoting “meaningful use” of electronic health records. More providers needed to use and become comfortable with EHR technology to improve interoperability, security, and patient engagement in a significant way.

While Meaningful Use is no longer directly in effect, its qualification criteria and standard measures are now part of MACRA (the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015). MACRA shifts focus from implementing EHR to improving quality of care for Medicare patients.

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
