Why the Future of Quality Healthcare Is Digital

Are you a doctor at a small practice who still thinks they can get by without needing to adapt their practice to the digital age? Think again. You may have successfully dodged parts of the HITECH Act for a time, and for that, we commend your loyalty! But technology has come a long way since 2009, and though it may seem like a nuisance to implement an EHR, once you get your surgical hands into these new digital innovations, you will be ready for the future!

Why is right now the time to embrace new healthcare technology? The largest generation in the history of the US will soon be sitting in the waiting room of your small practice, expecting technology to save their lives.

Robot doctors aren’t yet saving Millennial’s lives, but their backend counterparts, Electronic Health Records (EHRs), certainly are improving the quality of healthcare. How is technology and the digital age enhancing healthcare?

Convenience

The list of ways patients will be able to more easily interact with their doctor, their doctor’s schedule and their health records, is robust.

With the Right EHR, Patients can:

  • Pay from their phones.
  • Receive texts regarding appointments.
  • Access their health records.
  • Message their doctors securely.

It’s even more convenient for doctors!

With the Right EHR, Doctors Can:

  • Gain greater reimbursements from claims scrubbing
  • Speed up the claims process with an integrated clearinghouse
  • Improve organization with electronic patient logging
  • Optimize your practice with clinical and financial reporting

Bear in mind, these are only some of the digital advancements in the industry right now -- our team is working hard on the front lines to push innovation for small practices even further.

Embrace the Digital Age with the Modern Small Practice EHR

This new Millennial generation will be doing health care differently. It seems practice doctors have two choices:

  1. Embrace new healthcare technology and meet Millennials where they are -- on their phones and online.
  2. Or wish they had, because they’ll miss out on capturing this new business.

Millennials will not slow down their adoption of technology simply because some small practices hesitate, and they won’t settle for the inconvenience of not having it. Once these young, digitally savvy patients get a taste of how their experience is superior at practices that have adopted EHR systems, they will demand it every time. And if they don’t get it? They’ll find a doctor’s office that uses an EHR solution so they can once again enjoy the capabilities they have come to expect.

The patient experience varies by EHR because the patient experience is only as good as the doctor’s experience with the software. Here at Practice EHR, we took the time to speak with doctors, learn about their EHR hurdles and understand where and why some software fell short, and then we leveraged that knowledge and built an EHR platform perfect for small practices of 1-3 doctors.

We’re excited about this new digital age because we see all of the opportunity these technological advancements provide. Request a free demo of Practice EHR today so we can show you those opportunities firsthand. Simply, click below:
