EMR or electronic medical record systems are the pinnacle of integrated office technology, with tools to market, increase efficiency and revenues, and provide the best patient care available. Early EMR implementer and physical therapist, Nitin Chhoda, has released critical new information that practitioners should know before implementing any EMR system in their own clinic.

Chhoda’s new information enables practitioners to make informed choices on the implementation of an EMR system that’s cost effective and provides the highest level of efficiency.

“While a web-based or server-based EMR system may seem similar, there are distinct differences that will affect cost, convenience and efficiency,” said Chhoda. “Web-based EMR systems are compatible with tablets and offer a superior solution.”

According to Chhoda, a web-based system helps avoid the cost of purchasing the extensive equipment needed for a server-based system. He added that with an on-site server, practice owners are responsible for maintaining their own security requirements and remaining HIPAA compliant to meet federal standards. He named the following advantages of an integrated web-based system and the importance of employing the EMR using tablet technology.

  • Patient information can be retrieved from any location with Internet access and aren’t tied to the practice;
  • Can be integrated with existing software;
  • Can be used in tablets which offer lightweight portability and facilitate expansion into new markets;
  • Patient’s documents, test results, x-rays and notes can be scanned into a tablet to become part of the client’s permanent record;
  • Physical therapy coding and billing information are ready for submission before the client leaves the office;
  • Access to websites to inform and educate patients while in the office, allowing for better patient-therapist engagement;
  • Real-time billing, individually or in batches, for quicker reimbursements and better cash flow;

These capabilities are the current generation of EMR tools that are not previously available. Chhoda’s new information enables practitioners to make informed choices on the implementation of an EMR system that’s cost effective and provides the highest level of efficiency. The physical therapy field is evolving and web-based, tablet-implemented and integrated EMR systems help clinicians meet the many challenges of a rapidly changing profession.
