Benefits of EMRs to physicians

Technology is rapidly changing how we deliver health care in the U.S. From computers in patient rooms to tablets and smartphones in the ED, physicians need to be plugged in more than ever.

The conversation around EMRs often focuses on the patient benefits. However, providers who embrace them as the patient record realize EMRs allow them to:

  • Reduce human errors
  • Avoid duplicate tests
  • Make more accurate diagnoses
  • View thorough patient medical histories
  • Easily coordinate care
  • Quickly access test results
  • Send records to other physicians or health system departments
  • Save office space
  • Improve work flow and productivity in your practice
  • Write and track prescriptions (e-Prescribing)
  • Securely store confidential patient information
