Why an Integrated EHR Improves Patient Relationships


Do you ever feel like there just need to be more hours in the day? It's a common sentiment among doctors, who are constantly juggling patient care, administrative tasks, and staying up-to-date on the latest medical research. But what if I told you there was a way to add more time to your day? 

Enter integrated EHR systems. By streamlining administrative tasks and making it easier to access patient information, EHR systems are helping doctors peel off a few more hours each day. And that extra time can be put to good use - building stronger relationships with patients, staying up-to-date with the latest advances in the medical world, and even taking a well-deserved break. 

At the end of the day, it's all about improving the doctor/patient relationship. And with integrated EHR systems, that's easier than ever before. So, if you feel like there just aren't enough hours in the day, consider implementing an EHR system in your practice. You might be surprised at how much of a difference it can make. Here’s why: 

Time is of the Essence

It's common knowledge that physicians are often pressed for time, and patients appreciate appointments that are both efficient and thorough. Balancing productivity with quality care is a challenging task, but it's manageable with the right tools.

One way doctors can save time and streamline their processes is by leveraging software that integrates their Electronic Health Record (EHR), Practice Management (PM), and billing into a single, comprehensive system. By automating the manual input of data, doctors can enhance the practice’s productivity and reduce the risk of errors when transferring data.

Besides saving time and reducing errors, some integrated EHR systems offer a dashboard function that can report metrics such as revenue and the number of patients seen. This allows doctors to have a much better understanding of their practice's strengths and weaknesses and capitalize on these analytics to optimize their operations.

It's worth noting that credentialing - the process of verifying and validating the qualifications claimed by doctors and other healthcare practitioners - is critical to ensuring high-quality care. This process involves verifying a practitioner's education, training, certifications, malpractice coverage, and previous performance records to validate their expertise. By prioritizing credentialing, doctors can ensure that their patients receive the prime quality of healthcare possible. 

We are living in an on-demand world
Integrated EHR solutions have revolutionized the way physicians manage their practice by providing them instant access to patient information and billing. With all the functionalities integrated into one platform, physicians no longer have to switch between different software, which has helped save them precious time. The best part is that the solutions are now cloud-based, making it easier for physicians to manage their staff and deal with any claim issues, even when working from another location. 

With the rise of online platforms, patients are now getting answers to their healthcare questions online and on demand. According to a recent survey by the Pew Research Center, 72% of the U.S. adult population looks online for health information. This is where an integrated EHR system comes in handy since it helps enable a transparent process. Physicians can now meet this new wave of patient behavior in stride and provide them with the necessary information they need to make informed decisions about their health. 

One of the benefits of an integrated EHR system is a workflow that allows patients to pay any outstanding charges on-demand, which is a feature that patients appreciate. This, in turn, helps physicians build trustworthy relationships with their patients. 

Next Steps:

Practice EHR is an ideal solution for small practices looking for comprehensive medical practice management software that automates time-consuming tasks, allowing medical practitioners to focus on what matters most - patient satisfaction.
