EMR/EHR Systems: Making Medical Checkups More Comprehensive

Perhaps you’ve once gone to a diagnostic clinic or hospital for a checkup and only had to wait for fifteen minutes to get a printed report of your health status. If you are wondering how that worked, there is actually a comprehensive IT solution that can make health checkups easier for both medical health professionals and patients. Work can be done faster and there is no need to rush.

There are available integrated software systems that merge electronic health records (EHR) or electronic medical records (EMR) with medical billing services. With a few clicks, a physician can input information on their patient in an electronic file, where they can keep track of the patient's medical history. The software can also calculate the monetarily amount that is due, which makes medical billing much easier for the staff. This efficiency can strengthen the relationship between physicians and their patients as it improves communication.

The information that is recorded on the EHR may include symptoms, medical history, physical examinations, tests, diagnoses, and therapy. With the physician's knowledge and skill, diagnoses and prescriptions can be determined much earlier. The patient will not have to wait long in case he or she has other errands that need to be accomplished that day.

Additionally, the patients' individual histories can be easily accessed with these IT solutions. Other data such as referrals, laboratory test and results, and vital signs are also integrated into these records. This reduces the need to visit or contact other medical facilities to locate records for the same patient. This in turn saves time and effort for everyone, making the workflow smoother for the team of health care professionals.

The medical history recorded in the EMR/EHR system may include noted allergies, immunizations, and diagnostic history. This makes it easier for the physician to accurately determine and interpret the patient's health status using the EHR. Moreover, a physician can more accurately interpret some symptoms based on the noted immunizations and allergies. For example, if a patient is experiencing itchy rashes, it could be something other than German measles if the patient received the necessary immunization in his or her childhood.

Physicians can also use the EMR to capture and store clinical images. These clinical images may include ultrasound images, x-ray images, and photographs of infected body parts. By returning to these images for reference, a physician can keep track of the patient's overall health and assess whether any past illnesses may have contributed to the patient's present health condition.

Physicians can also use the software for order processing of prescriptions, referrals, and laboratory testing. In turn, these services can be calculated with the electronic medical billing services.
