(The Digitalization of Health Records)
Last week, we introduced the impact of technology on health care.
Let’s continue, firstly, we would begin with; ‘The Digitalization of Health Records’
The introduction of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) in replacing paper records has been a game changer for many allied healthcare professionals.
Medical assistants, medical records and health information technicians (MRHITs), medical billing and coding professionals, and registered nurses are just some of the allied healthcare roles impacted by this implementation.
Nurses and technicians are now responsible for inputting patient data such as vital signs, weight, test results, etc. into a central, digitized system. On the administration side of things, medical billers and coders use EHRs for scheduling appointments, updating patient records with diagnostic codes, and submitting medical claims.
Among the many benefits EHR technology has brought to healthcare include:
– Enhanced Patient Care
– Improved Public Health
– Ease of Workflow
– Lower Healthcare cost
These benefits will be explained in details in our next post, next week but that being said, this good news isn’t far-fetched as SeamHealth Innovations Ltd., a Healthcare Consulting company has started out with the mandate to deliver high quality and reliable innovative services to medium/large scale hospitals and public health institutions in developing countries. The mission is to apply healthcare delivery best practices already demonstrated in the United States to African countries, with the ultimate goal of improving the quality of patient care through efficient and effective data collection/reporting strategies.
These benefits should be enjoyed by all and Seamhealth is bringing it to all.
