Most doctors think specialty specific EHR systems only do a few things well:
- Build out specific for my practice’s specialty
- Speed up billing
- Keep patient records organized
- Save costs on paper, ink, envelopes, etc.
But the right EHR system has one more crucial benefit: Cloud accessibility!
Cloud-based means more than simply not having to download software. Being accessible from the cloud means you can access your business, patient records and billing system from anywhere, remotely, anytime!
Imagine you decide to travel out of state on vacation for the weekend, and just as you’re about to dip your toe into Lake Winnipesaukee, you remember that thing you forgot to do at the office that you couldn’t possibly let slide all weekend! What do you do?
No, you don’t need to cancel the trip or stress all weekend -- simply grab some WiFi, log into your cloud-based EHR platform and complete the task faster than you can say ‘Margarita!”
The Efficiency of Technology At Your Fingertips
This EHR feature epitomizes the distance modern technology has traveled from just a few decades ago, and how it’s influencing every corner of our society. Strangely enough, doctor’s offices weren’t the first place computers and cloud technology began, but it only matters they are here now.
What Does This Mean for Patients?
It’s not only Doctors that benefit from these new cloud-based EHR platforms -- patients should be just as excited! Now, like never before, patients are able to harness the power of the Internet as it affects their health care.
Some EHRs allow for online bill paying, access to digital medical records and online scheduling, just to name a few. Patients can receive automated texts to remind them of their upcoming appointments. They can access their personal medical history and make notes for their doctors on a secure channel, all from their WiFi enabled cell phones.
But Not Every EHR System Is Created Equal
Some EHR solutions don’t offer these groundbreaking features and benefits. Some are only accessible from the native computer they were installed on, so once you remember that thing you forgot to do at the office before you left for the weekend, you’ll have to withdraw your toe from Lake Winnipesaukee and cut your vacation short!
Practice EHR, however, comes standard with cloud-based technology as well as a patient portal, so your speciality specific small practice can take complete advantage of the digital age and all of the technological advancements of our time!
