Patient Portal: Effective Patient-Doctor Communication

Posted on: July 16th, 2013 by admin No Comments

Patient portal as the name indicates is a platform presenting the information related to the patients. Whenever we talk about how to provide a quality service from any kind of service provider, we get almost the same reply, by working in close relationship with the clients. Working close with the clients give us the clear understanding of their requirements which leads us to suggest the most appropriate and suitable solutions for them. In the medical world Doctors are the health care providers and patients are the clients. Doctors can never suggest anything until they have all the required information.

EHRs are incorporated with a patient portal being the important part of meaningful use. Some can be accessed from totally different website. Some are integrated within the EHR.

Why you should adopt a web based EHR?

Posted on: June 7th, 2013 by admin No Comments

Since 2009, when the US government announced the incentive programs on the adoption of EHR, a huge list of EHR systems are available out there in the IT market. Every EHR, claims to be the best EHR which can bring ease to the life of the doctors. With such a huge list and claims it is quite confusing for the doctors to choose the one, purely satisfying their needs. Above all of the other benefits and features the essential thing to consider is that, whether to adopt the web-based EHR or the desktop EHR. Well, as far as I know, web-based EHR is the better option as compared to the conventional desktop EHRs.

Web-based applications are ubiquitous and have a lot of benefits. With the advancements in technology and demand for the data security and privacy web-based EHRs are high in demand. Though web-based EHRs have plenty of advantages I am going to put some significant ones under the spotlight.

The top most reason that why doctors should go for web-based EHR is that they are highly manageable and deployable. Obviously doctors cannot deal with the application management and deployment issues. For that they have to hire the IT professionals. In that case what an electronic health record system is going to save for the doctor? The main purpose of the EHR is, to save time and money of both the doctor and the patient, along with the quality of service. If the doctor has to focus on the technical things then how he is going to focus on the quality and without the fulfillment of these basic requirements EHRs are totally useless. Web-based EHRs can be accessed in two simple step. Get a subscription, login to the system and you are ready to go. You do not have to worry at all about the deployment issues, data security issues, data safety issues, and server management. Everything will be managed by the EHR providers.

Web-based EHR also reduces the cost of the system. You just have to pay for the subscription and then you need an internet. You do not have to worry about the hardware etc. automatically reducing the cost.

Another reason why we are advocating for a web-based EHR is its cross platform compatibility and flexibility. It is the age of smart devices. Now, no one wants to sit and work as it was done traditionally. Everyone wants to have the information on the go. Web-based EHR can be accessed wherever or whenever you want. You can access it on your laptop, your tablet and your smart phone. It leads to better coordination and relationship between the patient and the doctor automatically improving the quality.

Collectively web-based EHRs are truly implementing the purpose of electronic health record systems. Anyone who wants to enjoy using EHR should go for web-based EHR.
