Denville, NJ (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
Most practitioners are now more focused on the positive factors of utilizing an electronic medical record system. Licensed physical therapist, Nitin Chhoda, said that although investing in EMR system seems a bit expensive in the beginning, the cost will actually result in increased financial savings for clinicians.
He also added that aside from being a cost-effective software, the EMR system tends to preserve space because all medical records will be kept in a computer, thus saving massive document files on each individual. This already shows a minimum percentage of the space required to store physical medical records.
In addition to conserving space is the decrease of paper consumption, which medical offices, hospitals or insurance companies often used many years ago. Electronic medical records do not render paper obsolete, but it certainly reduces needed paper tremendously.
According to Chhoda, an additional advantage of electronic medical records is the ability of the health care team to organize and focus on patient care. They are able to avoid duplication of tests, prescribe medicines that are unlikely to be dangerous, and understand the techniques taken in a condition. When specialists and other medical practitioners use the EMR system, the staff and other team members are immediately informed about their certain actions and recommendations.
EMR system conserves time as well. A doctor will have quick access to all of the patient’s information such as x-rays, medical tests, as well as information regarding medicines or allergy symptoms. The doctor is empowered to take action straight away, thereby saving time. This can be especially useful in urgent situations where a patient is not able to respond to medical history questions due to severe sickness or personal injury.
