Healthcare administration is changing rapidly with the advent of integrated, web-based Electronic Health Record (EHR) Solutions and new compliance rules. EHR Solutions have changed the ratio of support staff required in health care companies by automating standardized tasks, integrating data across programs and improving data collection and analysis. At the same time, EHR Solutions have come down in price while expanding options and applications. SaaS pricing has allowed small and mid-range companies to invest in EHR solutions, once only affordable to large companies.
In Today’s increasingly complex and competitive health services delivery environment, health care providers must be efficient, flexible and robust. Patchworks of disparate electronic and paper-based systems, while doing the job, are sure to incur higher levels of support costs. Entering the same information in 2, 3 or 5 places, for instance, costs more money. Exposed PHI information represents an increased risk, considered by some privacy advocates to be among the top five company business risks.
The solution: A cloud-based integrated Electronic Health Record Software or sometimes referred to as a Case Management Software. There are many systems available on the market to choose from. Cost is perhaps the most commonly asked question and consideration. Decisionmakers must look beyond the monthly fees, to total costs of acquiring and using the system. Equally important are the non-financial benefits of an EHR solution. Good data integrity, security, and compliance practices are added insurance to your business. The ability to generate high quality and timely reports is the icing on the cake.
Selecting the best EHR is one of the most important considerations you will make in your business. It is work a decent investment of time and effort. Investing in a good EHR pays dividends!
