Managing all facets of a patient’s care, treatment and pertinent information is easy and conducted efficiently with an integrated EMR. The software system allows therapists to obtain a client’s status at a glance and maintain contact with patients through multiple methods. Chhoda noted that an EMR provides a complete snapshot of a patient’s status, allowing clinicians to better address client needs and institute a course of treatment quicker.

Chhoda named the following benefits of an EMR for simplifying and managing patient care for continuity.

  •     Live, instant updates by multiple providers;
  •     Diagnosis history;
  •     A complete record of x-rays, lab work and tests;
  •     Online prescriptions, refills and medication history;
  •     Immunization records;
  •     Online patient forms, scheduling and appointments;
  •     Collaboration with other healthcare providers;
  •     Instant referrals;
  •     Secure, HIPAA-compliant communications via email, phone, and voice and text messaging;
  •     Scan, digitize and import paper records into the EMR system in multiple formats;
  •     Online medical billing and self-pay options;

Today’s patient typically has at least two healthcare providers they see on a regular basis, and with the number of specializations in each field, clients may see four or more providers. An EMR can be accessed by multiple healthcare professionals and instantly updated by each for the most accurate data possible. The instant availability of information allows therapists to evaluate prior procedures and ascertain the efficacy of each. Clinicians can then develop new and innovative treatments for their clients.

Chhoda’s new information provides physical therapy practices with compelling reasons for implementing an integrated EMR. The systems simplify the patient management process and extend to all aspects of a practice, providing continuity of care in the clinic and with other providers.
