Ensuring completeness and accuracy of a patient medical history is essential and critical to providing safe and effective healthcare.
Providers grapple with many challenges when a patient is at the practice. Lack of information on patient history is certainly one of the most important ones. Imagine a situation where the patient is not carrying her previous medical history and is not able to completely elaborate on his/her past health issues. In such cases the provider has to, in many cases, start all over again in terms of initiating treatment.
The execution of an electronic health record system is a substantial investment for a practice. The selection process could be intensive and time-consuming and that’s before the deployment of specific tools, including the EHR along with other nonessential software.
Healthcare is one of the key sectors globally and because of the increasing demand in specific sections of healthcare, decreasing redundant expenditure and improving overall effectiveness has never been more critical.
An increasingly frequent concern among stakeholders in healthcare is that private practices may find it challenging to cope with the requirements of value-based care. However, by adopting appropriate measures, private practices, both small and large, would be able to overcome the challenges of implementing value-based care.
Web presence is vital for all sectors, including Healthcare. In an era where the Internet is such an effective communication medium, lack of a website or online presence could result in patients moving away and finding some other practice.
At present, the healthcare system is also looking at various best practices that would facilitate the establishment of an efficient private practice. Ineffective management practices would severely impact the bottom-line.
Millions of Indians are impacted by mental health conditions yearly. Mental pain is not as dramatic as physical pain, but it is more common and also more difficult to bear. We don’t talk about it like other diseases, but over 300 million people globally are suffering from depression. Depression and bad mental health have not been given importance since ages. However, depression could also result in death if it gets worst.
The healthcare scenario is witnessing a paradigm shift. Robotic surgery and EHRs on smart phones and tablets are now a reality. Advanced healthcare technologies are shrinking in magnitude but growing in scope. The role of doctors has also changed drastically. Doctors specialize in a particular field, such as cardiology, urology, pediatrics, oncology, etc.
Caring for patients is important, but keeping up with insurance payments, medical billing codes, purchasing office material, and other activities could be stressful. Often, clinics use various software solutions for multiple activities. For e.g., an EHR system for patient records and a distinct billing software to monitor finances.
