  • Why Healthcare Is A Top Target For Hackers

    The healthcare field is currently in a precarious position. New technologies promise to improve care and increase the success of outcomes with far greater consistency.

  • What Healthcare Facilities Are Failing To Prioritize

    From wall mounts, to patient e-tablets to flexible and configurable medical carts and telemedicine solutions, innovative medical furniture is supporting the technology transforming healthcare every day.

  • Journey To Value: The State Of Value Based Reimbursement

    Value-Based Payment Hits The Tipping Point: Second in a series of national research studies on healthcare’s transition from volume to value.

  • Reinventing Claims Payment For A Value Based World

    The U.S. healthcare industry’s claims-payment system is frustrating to providers, payers, and patients alike. Inefficiency and a systemwide tendency for error wastes precious resources, worsens miscommunication and mistrust among all stakeholders, and inhibits the ability to transition to value-based approaches that achieve better outcomes.

ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS

Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems, also called electronic medical records (EMRs), are designed to collect and store information about individual patients or populations digitally. Conceptually, the electronic aspect allow then to be shared across healthcare providers, departments, and locations. EHRs and EMRs provide an advantage over paper records by making patient data available instantly in any location and allowing data to be stored and retrieved more efficiently.

EHRs and EMRs can store information, images, scans, and more to provide physicians with a comprehensive view of a patient's medical history, current medications, allergies, immunizations, test and lab results, previous diagnoses, and other relevant information.

In addition to providing patient information, EHRs and EMRs allow providers to better automate and streamline the collection and organization of patient data. Electronic access to patient information allows healthcare organizations to make better decisions, spot trends and outbreaks, manage care quality, and report on outcomes.

EHRs and EMRs can also reduce redundancy and duplicate work, reducing staffing costs and freeing up personnel to spend more time with patients and less time with paperwork.
