“EMR is a breeze compared to paper. You’re crazy not to buy EMR. It will be your best investment ever!”
Keri Sweeten, MD, FACOG
“All the information I need to address the situation more completely is at my fingertips. I can give better care because my EMR reminds me of things I need to do.”
Allen Germaine, MD

“I think the advantage for our patients is that we are providing better medical care. EMR is more timely, accurate, and efficient. I can manage diabetes in a much better way using EMR than I did before using a paper chart.”

EHR is better for the patient.
EMR users are automatically notified of Adverse Drug Event (ADE) alerts or allergy alerts when writing prescriptions. They can also identify all patients who are taking a recalled drug within minutes.
Improved Lab Results
With EMR, Lab results are discreet reportable data that can be used to generate reports and compare trends over time. Users are flagged when a patient hasn’t gone to the lab yet or their lab result comes back abnormal.
Access to Providers
Because EMR makes providers more efficient, they are able to see more patients and patients can get in sooner to get help. With online messaging and access to patient charts, patients and providers can actually communicate with each other.
Timely & Accurate Care
EMR users can send referring providers lab results, current medications, and any information needed the same day. All the information they need is organized and at their fingertips.
On Top Of Health Maintenance
Providers are automatically reminded in the exam room when a patient is due for preventative or disease-management services and are more likely to catch problems in earlier stages.
Protected Patient Charts
If flood, fire, or a natural disaster were to strike all the information in a patient’s chart could be easily recovered. An EMR provider could even have their practice back up and running at a different location within hours.
EHR is better for the doctor.
EMR Increases Productivity
EMR automates the processes that are required to run your practice every day. EMR automates the manual pulling and filing of paper charts, end-of-day reporting, and charting. EMR also integrates diagnostic devices with patient records; the system automatically inputs lab and x-ray results directly into the patient’s chart, eliminating the need to manage the many types of forms received in the office.
EMR Increases Revenue
EMR can increase your revenue by:
- Increase the number of patients you can see in a day. Experienced physicians report an increase up to 33% in patient visits.
- Eliminate down-coding. EMR improves insurance reimbursement as a result of better coding and billing procedures.
- Enabling practices to add an additional physician without increasing the number of staff. In fact, since your chart room is now empty, you can convert that into an extra exam room.
- Making billers more efficient. EMR eliminates tedious manual tasks and allows them to focus on revenue-generating activities, like collecting insurance payments.
EMR Helps You Cut Operating Costs
A traditional office has many unnecessary costs including:
- Paper Chart Costs- purchasing folders, paper, stickers, ink, etc.
- High Labor Costs due to system inefficiencies- copying, faxing, pulling, filing, and assembling paper charts.
- Chart Storage Costs- office space, cabinets, and offsite storage.
- Dictation Costs- Transcriptionist bill and the provider’s labor cost for time spent reviewing the transcriptions.
EMR Improves Clinical Decision Making
EMR’s tools help doctors make better decisions. These tools range from questions to ask while diagnosiing, to prescribing medications, to treatment plan recommendations. Most EMRs have built in PDR-based medication dictionaries providing doctors with Adverse Drug Event (ADE) alerts as well as generic drug and dosage recommendations. EMRs also provide decision support to make treatment recommendations based off of a patient’s diagnosis. In addition, doctors appreciated EMR’s automatic health maintenance reminder system.
EMR Improves Documentation
With the new HIPAA laws, many offices using paper charts are exposing themselves to unnecessary risks. Our EMRs come equipped with a security administration module enabling administrators to manage access to patient records through user permissions. EMRs provide physicians with access to a more complete and legible patient record. One of the greatest advantages to having patient documentation digitized is the ability to manipulate data for reporting capabilities. This is useful for research reports, statistics, drug recalls and patient marketing. EMR software permits more than one user to access a patient’s chart at the same time. This feature helps ensure a more complete and accurate chart because all the information can be entered in real-time.
EMR Helps Deliver Better Care to Patients
When you add up all the advantages, EMR doesn’t just help the practice- but improves patient care. With EMR, lab results are now discreet reportable data so providers can view trands over time and easily show those reports to the patients. Prescriptions are now safer because of drug interaction alerts. Instead of waiting several days, providers can offer timely information to referring providers the same day. And because all the needed information is available at their fingertips, providers can make better informed decisions regarding the patient’s wellbeing.
