Make the Switch and Eliminate Your
Electronic health records were created to improve efficiency within practices, allowing physicians to easily access patient data within a few clicks. They were seen as a useful tool to allow the physician to spend less time charting and more time focusing on the patient. Unfortunately, many popular EHRs today were designed by software developers, neglecting the useful influences of a physician’s own experience on how a chart should be designed. Instead of increasing patient-practitioner interactions, providers spend even more time charting on their EHR due to confusing workflows and inefficient system configurations. Because of this missed opportunity to collaborate, many physicians are left using non-intuitive systems, causing ongoing frustration among staff.
According to a survey conducted by Medical Economics, 87 percent of physicians currently use an EHR within their practice, but 70 percent of them are indifferent or unsatisfied with their current system. Spending too much time inputting unrelated patient data, hindering practice workflow and difficulty making face-to-face patient connections during exams are among the top reasons why practitioners dislike their current EHR. Interoperability was a primary concern among respondents, as 69 percent believe their system’s record sharing ability could be improved. These physicians cited user-friendliness, better customization abilities, improved vendor support and affordability as capabilities they wish their EHR had.
Other physicians from the study don’t use EHRs due to negative impacts on patient relationships, a preference for paper charting and high costs of adopting an electronic system. In addition, 37 percent of these physicians don’t want to spend the time and money to learn and use a complicated system.
If more than half of physicians dislike their current EHR and wouldn’t recommend it to a colleague, why don’t they make the switch?
Making the EHR Switch
Many practitioners typically stay with their current EHR because they’re reluctant to learn and adapt to a new complicated system – so they stick with their current complicated system.
But, charting doesn’t have to be a chore. It can actually be a simple and intuitive process designed to enhance a physician’s daily workflow and processes.
Amazing Charts EHR was designed by a physician for physicians, keeping common practice struggles and areas for improvement in mind. The system mimics a paper chart to minimize charting confusion and frustration by displaying a familiar and easy-to-use method of data input. For both paper and EHR users, this user-friendly design encourages a simple transition and instantaneous learning.
26 percent of surveyed physicians have used over five EHR systems – but Amazing Charts EHR is the one solution to eliminate your practice inefficiencies and improve your daily workflow.
Charting doesn’t need to be time-consuming and stressful. Making the switch to a new system, whether you currently use one or not, can be worth the investment with an intuitive system and an experienced support team.
Additional Tools to Refine Your Practice Operations
Improving practice efficiency doesn’t need to stop at switching your EHR. Solutions such as practice management, medical billing services and population health work with your EHR and allow your practice to be fully optimized throughout all areas.
Take control of your finances and optimize your practice workflow by integrating a practice management system into your office mix. Manage patient
records, insurance eligibility, documents and billing with an all-in-one user-friendly interface. The system allows
you to find and eliminate issues before they become problems – leaving you more
time to concentrate on patients and other office tasks.
Medical Billing Services
Looking to outsource your practice’s billing? Medical billing services allow you to hand off your billing, with real-time reporting features and timely submissions. Your practice could experience an increase in collections, a higher rate of claims paid on first submission, and a quicker time to payment with your payers and patients.
You need more than your EHR to understand, engage, measure and improve your patient population health care and risk stratification demands. Your EHR is great at analyzing a single patient, but a population health tool can analyze your practice as a whole. The tool is designed to aggregate, analyze, and achieve results, such as better patient care, reduced patient costs, and increased practice productivity.
