Bariatrics & Weight Management EHR/EMR Software
Perhaps one of the most crucial practice decisions you will make is what EHR software you select for your bariatrics and weight management practice.
This software has become an essential tool in effective patient and practice management, offering all the data you need to create a care plan and follow through with weight management services. When it comes to choosing your EHR/EMR software, there are some key features you need—and AdvancedMD offers.
Many EHR/EMR software systems promise customizable tools, but most have very strict parameters that you must work within based on how the software is built. With AdvancedMD, we believe in true customization for your weight management and bariatrics EHR software. That means creating exactly the system you need with the specific tools and functionality that makes sense for your practice. We offer:
Data is the key to unlocking the healthcare potential of each practice, as well as cost-savings and quality improvement. AdvancedMD software is one of the key tools in your toolbox to capture and evaluate data, and use it to improve the lives of your patients.
View all the critical information within a patient’s file, and in-depth analysis from our machine learning and artificial intelligence (ML and AI) tools on what type of care will work best. We have developed proprietary solutions that use multiple algorithms to predict future patient care needs and reduce errors in surgery and clinical care.
Data tools can also help you improve patient outcomes with automated alerts that use multiple information sources to improve care, including:
One of the hardest things about our fragmented care system is the inability to share data effectively between providers. Many bariatrics and weight management providers need to share medical history, diagnosis, and treatment data with primary care providers or other specialists. Patient care is increasingly interconnected and the consequences of a weight management program or bariatrics surgery can affect many other areas of care. But most systems still don’t share data effectively.
At AdvancedMD, we believe in the power of connecting systems and sharing information. We offer multiple existing APIs to connect your software to common EHRs and practice management systems, including for ancillary services. If we don’t have an API available for the software you want to connect, let us know and we’ll do our best to help you create one. We also make it easy for providers and patients to download all the information in a patient’s chart and share it with other providers or systems.
You can also pull in important data from ancillary services, such as laboratories and imaging centers. These connections provide more accurate patient information and reduce the risk of medical malpractice as a result of data transfer errors.
EHRs are a necessary part of today’s clinical practice, but as a provider you don’t want to spend all the time in a patient appointment on your computer. You also don’t want to set aside several hours after clinic or surgery to type information into patient records. We built our system to ensure you capture all the most important information for high-quality patient care, while minimizing time spent staring at a screen.
Our templates help you see exactly what information is required so you can capture it or get information from your patient in the exam room. Use shortcut keys and automated data entry to save time when entering information that is repeated for multiple patients or across multiple encounters. Copy and paste from prior notes or care plans into your current encounter notes to save time when patients are there for follow-up appointments.
We use a centralized patient information and clinical care database, and connect all our software solutions to it. That means you can quickly pull information from scheduling to the EHR, and send it along to imaging and lab service partners, then move it to your billing and coding team. There are no data downloads, uploads, or manual information entry. This reduces the risk of data entry errors while maximizing employees’ and providers’ time.
Plus, the entire system is cloud-based, which means you and your team can access it from anywhere that you have an internet connection and a mobile device. Smartphone, tablets, laptops, and desktop access ensures that you always have the information you need at your fingertips.
