How you'll benefit from leaving paper charts behind

The health care community has seen decades of research indicating the powerful benefits and innovations that electronic health records can bring to a medical office.

Enhanced quality of care

High quality patient care is of paramount importance to any medical professional, and the advances in health information technology help doctors improve patient outcomes in countless ways. Clinical decision support, patient education resources, and electronic exchange of information between care providers can all positively impact health outcomes.

Immediate access to information

One of the most apparent benefits of EHR software is instant availability of information. Rather than searching through filing cabinets and piles of paperwork for a patient's clinical notes, EHR software organizes patient data for fast, easy access, so clinical staff members don't have to spend time pulling and refilling paper charts.

Reduced medical error

Illegible handwriting, missing patient charts, and overlooked allergies are all culprits behind thousands of treatment errors each year. A comprehensive series of drug interaction checks can automatically keep track of a patient's medication and allergy list, making EHR an invaluable point of reference for managing treatment plans.

Upgraded security standards

Certified EHR software comes with a host of security standards designed to protect your patient data-audit logs, access controls, data encryption, user authentication, and more. Practices using EHR can track how and when patient charts were opened, prevent unauthorized access to data, and recover information in the case of emergencies or disasters.
