EMR for DPMs
Doctors of podiatric medicine (DPMs), also known as podiatric physicians and surgeons, have the education and training to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg. Whether it’s a sports injury, diabetes complication, pediatric deformity, or heel pain, today’s podiatrist is uniquely qualified among medical professionals to treat the foot and ankle. Podiatrists need an electronic health record (EHR) that integrates with their existing practice management system and focuses on their unique needs for documenting patient encounters. While podiatrists only deal with the foot and the ankle, both feet contain ¼ of all the bones in the body and each foot has more than 100 tendons, ligaments and muscles.
But what podiatrists don’t want is to have to force their workflow and diagnoses into a system built for traditional physicians. With that in mind, McKesson has developed a set of podiatric-specific templates within McKesson’s EHR solutions, which will improve podiatric specific workflow and facilitate more accurate documentation. These templates were validated by members of the American Board of Podiatric Surgeons and the American Board of Podiatric Orthopedics and delve into the necessary detail that podiatrists need to diagnose the tiny yet very distinctive bones in the foot and ankle.
Podiatrists are a diverse group of practitioners. From a work standpoint, some focus strictly on treating patients in their office while others tend to focus more on surgeries of the foot and ankle. In general, they share many characteristics with family physicians and internal medicine specialists, but have some very specific traits that separate them. They are a small part of the medical community – there are anywhere between 12,000 and 15,000 podiatrists practicing in the US. About 19 percent of podiatrists are self-employed and many are solo practitioners, although more are entering group practices with other podiatrists or other health practitioners.
There is a clear delineation between the two main groups of podiatrists. Group 1 is often a solo practitioner that is either self-employed or works in a small office. They tend to work only on in-office patients and remove bunions, ingrown toenails, corns, calluses and the early onset of hammertoe. Their focus is just the foot and they often help with fitting of sneakers and shoes to improve walking and comfort.
Group 2 tends to be the larger practices and may be in an office with other healthcare providers. Their focus goes from the entire foot all the way to just below the knee so they are working as much with the ankle as the foot. They will still have in-office consultations, but their money is made doing surgery at a local center or hospital. They also tend to get the larger share of diabetes patients with serious foot issues depending on the population in their area.
The new specialty templates made are customized to fit all types of Podiatrists. So no matter what kind of podiatrist you consider yourself- you will be amazed at how efficient your practice can be when you implement and Electronic Medical Record. You will wonder how you ever lived without EMR before.
