A long time ago my very first job was working on medical information systems and it’s interesting to see how far along such systems have moved since that time.
The world of electronic health records software these days is all about managing patient care effectively. No more mistakes through unreadable handwriting, fewer problems through prescribing medications that interfere with existing drugs that the patient may be taking and generally more efficient management of the practice. In general terms, a massive improvement in the quality of service that you offer your patients.
Having said that, it is scary to move from paper based systems onto entirely online ones and for that you need consultancy support during the period of changeover. You’ll never regret the move though!Copyright © 2004-2014 by Foreign Perspectives. All rights reserved.
