EMR News, a website created by Nitin Chhoda, an international marketing expert, has recently added a new blog post about electronic medical records which is the latest technology of physical therapy documentation.
"With the growing need for medical professionals to stay on top of their practice, many tools have been designed and released with the goal of helping doctors maximize their time while helping them provide better results for their patients," Chhoda said. "One of the tools that can help them manage their practice more efficiently and effectively is with the use electronic medical records system," he added.
He noted that one of the medical practices that entails a lot of patient monitoring is physical therapy. That is why it is important for physical therapists to constantly update themselves about electronic medical records.
According to Chhoda, this technology enables physical therapists stay on top of their patients’ records and thus being able to provide the optimum health care needed. Medical professionals can now focus more in analyzing data and giving a proper diagnosis because of the help of EMR where at a glance, they can see a patient’s medical record and provide a more knowledgeable diagnosis.
"For physical therapist, this kind of technology used in physical therapy management will mean more efficiency when it comes to effectively monitoring their patients’ progress," Chhoda added.
According to one survey done in the United States, the amount of time that physical therapy EMR has saved private practitioners is just overwhelming. The amount of money that will be saved surpasses the start-up costs of getting this technology set up for their patients. As each physical therapy doctor records their patient’s health history, lab tests and medication, recording these data and maintaining them costs time and money.
The benefits of physical therapy EMR can be fully appreciated as doctors can cut down redundant tests and reduced amount of physical medical records that take time and space to maintain. As a result, more patients will less likely need expensive treatments in the future.
Chhoda is one advocate user of this amazing technology. In his website, emrnews.com, he shares with his fellow physical therapy practitioners the benefit of using EMR for physical therapy services. As per his latest blog post, using physical therapy EMR software will save private practitioners time and money as they can conveniently record their patients’ medical history where they can access it anytime and anywhere. Doctors who will adapt to this recent physical therapy documentation can analyze a wealth of information quickly that will enable them to provide the best diagnosis and treatment.
The use of EMR has been supported by the government and is one of the long term plans in the United States to cut costs and provide optimal health care. Read a report on CNN has to say:
“President-elect Barack Obama, as part of the effort to revive the economy, has proposed a massive effort to modernize health care by making all health records standardized and electronic. Here's the audacious plan: Computerize all health records within five years. The quality of health care for all Americans gets a big boost, and costs decline.” – CNN.com
With that statement from the authorities, physical therapists should start learning and adapting the use of physical therapy EMR as soon as possible.
