During admission, the front desk nurse was told to ask the new patients if they suffered from any allergies. If they did, the nurse would print a special ‘allergy band’ which was then placed on the patient’s wrist to remind all other healthcare workers. One day an elderly woman was asked if she had any allergies.
The woman responded by saying that she could not have bananas. Later the front desk nurse was terrified when a very irate son came out of the ward demanding, ‘Who’s responsible for labeling my mother ‘bananas’?’ HA!
Chiropractic Electronic Health Records
No matter what type of system is in place at a medical practice, there’s always a chance for error. In this case, the poor front desk nurse was the one who really caught the negative results to an otherwise pretty easy process. Just like this case, what seems easy and comfortable may not always be the best solution.
Could this practice have benefited if they had an electronic health record? Upon opening each chart, a nice alert could have easily reminded them of allergies, just as well as a band. At Clinic Doctor, we open an entire new door to practices that have been stuck doing things “the good old fashioned way.”
Hello, EHr! It’s nice to see you!
There are so many perks to having an electronic health record, EHr. For many, the largest perk would be time. For medical providers, there is no way you can properly chart, dictate, and bill, all at the same time. At least, there used to be no way. Clinic Doctor allows you to do it all while you are in the room with the patient.
As you chart, charges are automatically dropped with diagnosis codes. This means that as the patients walk out the door, your charting is completed. Imagine how much time this can save you!
Additionally, EHrs can save you money. At the end of the day, it’s all about the money. Without it, your practice would not survive. By outsourcing your billing to us, and using our EHr, you will be sending the hard stuff to expert professionals that are use to filing difficult claims. As government regulations become tighter, having a professional to handle your claims can give you peace of mind and save you tons of money!
There are so many positives to an electronic health record, including no irate patients yelling at you for calling their mom bananas! To learn more information about Clinic Doctor and how it can impact your practice, call us today.
