Before you start reading this, have you read the post preceeding this?
Oops! (Inserts hyperlink) go read to catch up on what you’ve missed and come back later. So, back to our discussion. It’s more like a continuation of where we stopped last week but can stand its own as well.
The topic is quite clear and you can almost hear your subconscious mind yelling a reply to it. What does technology bring to healthcare? A loooooot! Haha, I just spoke someone’s mind. Yeah, we know it has brought a lot of good and maybe bad (we will look into this).
But let’s get it clear so we didn’t just have an undefined affirmative answer hovering in our minds.
Firstly, starting with Electronic Health Records (EHRs), technology has brought;
- Enhanced Patient Care
If you would agree with me, EHR can automatically alert the treating physicianto potential issues, such as allergies or intolerances to certain medicines. EHRs can be accessed in any medical facility, which is extremely useful for doctors to access their medical history. This is especially important if the patient is unconscious.
- Improved Public Health
EHRs provide invaluable data to clinical researchers, which advances medical knowledge and the development of new treatments for common health problems.
Additionally, a central and standardized system throughout the entire healthcare industry can identify a viral or bacterial infection quickly. This can give insights into how widespread an outbreak is, enabling preventative measures to be put in place much more quickly.
- Ease of Workflow
Medical billers and coders are perhaps most impacted by EHRs, as the number of medical codes recently jumped from 13,600 to 69,000. Despite this huge jump, the introduction of EHRs has made life for medical billers and coders much easier.
Entering data into a computerized system is much less time-consuming than paper-based methods. It also reduces the risk of errors in patient data and financial details. Accessing patient records digitally can be done in an instant and viewed via portable devices, increasing efficiency and productivity.
- Lower Healthcare Costs
According to a study from the the University of Michigan, the shift from paper to electronic health records reduces the cost of outpatient care by 3%. These researchers estimated this as $5.14 in savings per patient each month.
That being said, you can see the need to embrace Seamhealth in our space. Seamhealth having gone through thorough research has emerged as a big answer to the countries that are yet to fully enjoy technology’s benefit on healthcare.
