How Important are the Electronic Medical Records in Healthcare Sector
Do you really wish to know the future of the health care industry globally? Well it is very vast, since the Obama administration dedicated approx $18 billion for the welfare of the hospital or clinical facilities to digitalize the patient credentials using the electronic medical records facility online. Following the latest trends of the information technology the health care industry is becoming very particular for keeping the patient’s information online.
The electronic medical records facility was embraced whole heatedly by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) including the wide network of nearly 15 hospitals, 350 clinics of the doctors’, OPD sites and 60,000 employees. The innovative technique of EHR system is said to be enrolled with approx 4 million online patient records comprising CT scans, X-rays, clinical laboratory reports and a lot more. The particular EMR system initiated by UPMC is duly assessed by 30,000 users covering 6000 medical practitioners.
According to the verdict of UPMC, chief medical information officer, Dan Martich, there is dire need of candidates wishing to pursue their career in the health care industry, especially as the Electronic Medical Records professional because the IT section of the UPMC requires lot of integration for working collectively with the medical firms. Thus requiring professionals well versed with world of information technology to resolve such issues persistently.
However, there are some places across the globe that lacks the full fledge working of the EMR system; the main reason for this is the applied cost to the program. Some of the hospitals or clinical establishments lack the desired support system for utilising the project on the larger scale. On basic terms the hospital may spend $15 million to $150 million for the implementation of the Electronic Medical Records depending on the requirement.
Although the recent study conducted by one of professors of the Harvard School of Public Health reveals that the use of Electronic Medical Record facility could help the several hospitals or doctor’s clinics to save approx $150 on annual basis, which is being spent on the paper work of the patient data.
On the whole if we go by the statistical information for the implementation of the Electronic Medical record facility, we may come to the conclusion that Electronic Health Record professional are required to not for saving or investments in the health care industry rather they are required to improve the patient health care system with the justification of their financial settlements towards the hospitals or clinical establishments across the world.
