If you're wondering what the full electronic health record system (EHR) experience is, here's a brief look at what you can do with all the necessary recordkeeping, charting, prescribing, and communicating that your clinic or practice goes through each day:

  • Enter and access all patient information directly into one, easy-to-access file.

  • Integrate all major components of clinical practice in both the short-term (why a patient has scheduled a visit) to long-term (figuring out a treatment plan).

  • Prevent errors due to handwriting or miscommunication.

  • Allow approved stakeholders to access patient records, both in-office and remotely.

  • Create a more streamlined workflow.

  • Prescribe drugs without making time-consuming phone calls or managing faxes.

  • Utilize clinical decision support functionality to improve quality and patient safety such as alerts, reminders, documentation templates, clinical guidelines, order sets, patient education materials, patient reporting, and quality dashboards.

  • Prescribe drugs without making time-consuming phone calls or managing faxes.

  • Engage patients in the management of their own care.

  • Create long-term treatment and health management plans for patients.

  • Manage groups of patients.

  • Flag patient files for drug recalls, drug interactions, or helpful follow-up suggestions.

  • Organize communications and messages among everyone in the practice.

  • Integrate with billing and claims data or systems.
