How Innovative EHRs Advance Patient Care


How Inovative EHRs Advance Patient Care | AdvanedMD

The earliest electronic medical records were simply electronic versions of a paper chart and were essentially electronic document storage platforms. They stored information from a visit in a digital file rather than a paper file. These traditionally were called EMR. As technology advanced, so did the capabilities and possibilities of health record systems. EMR started to evolve into EHR. The main difference was data exchange or interoperability.

Fast forward to today. Roughly 96% of providers and clinics have utilized some type of health record system (EMR or EHR) to track patient medical information. Most of these have been EMRs. The expectation of the more robust EHR technology didn’t materialize in a way that streamlined patient visits, reduced costs, and improved clinical operations. Charting and data access continued to be more of a burden than a benefit with extensive data entry requirements and clunky interfaces for entering and extracting data. Providers had to devote so much data-entry time to managing the information that it had the opposite effect in many ways, taking time away from patient care.

So why are so many people disenfranchised with electronic charting processes? What is the promise EHRs were designed to deliver? To address these concerns, we created an eBook to help bridge the knowledge and understanding gap between yesterday’s outdated document storage systems and today’s innovative advancements in patient care. We share how to identify an EHR that offers improved workflow through data unification and innovative features to improve care for your patients. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s inside:

  • Improved usability through physician-influenced user interfaces
  • Advanced diagnostic tools through data collection and analysis
  • Improving patient safety by reducing medical errors
  • Ways to offer patients better access and communication
  • Coordinating care among multiple providers and facilities

“[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.”
