Digitization has helped the healthcare sector with new technologies simplify the consultation process, support doctors to manage healthcare data and elevate the patient-physician interactions to a whole new level. As part of this, electronic health records or EHRs have emerged as the unique mechanism to reduce manual efforts, optimize productivity and manage revenues. It helps create a comprehensive health portfolio of the individual accessible by both them and the healthcare provider. This serves as a rich data source towards a wholesome healthcare experience while helping those who plan healthcare accessibility, policies, development, and financial coverage.
Here is what you can expect from this article;
Though EMR (Electronic Medical Record) and EHR (Electronic Health Record) are very close in their rationales, they differ in their basic structure and connectivity. While an EMR could be an electronic form of a patient’s paper-based medical records created by one doctor for a particular practice, the EHR is a complete health record of the patient for all the symptoms with many other aspects.
To better understand the difference between EMR and EHR, check out their main purpose, key capabilities and use cases below:
EHR software has emerged as a preferred alternative for medical practices and healthcare organization if they want to improve collaboration between teams, increase integration and enhance their quality of care.
According to international health IT figures, the demand for productivity-enhancing electronic health records is rising exponentially. It is expected to reach $33.4 billion by 2025. Let’s take a look at how the implementation of EHR software would augment the healthcare ecosystem.
EHR system development includes the digitalization of clinical data, and it offers many benefits to both physicians and patients. Rishabh Software works in tandem with healthcare organizations & practitioners to enhance care quality, improve operational efficiency with accurate documentation & intelligent data capture. As a custom EHR development partner, we work with organizations throughout the implementation process and provide end-to-end support.
It enables them to make the most of the following benefits:
Partner with us to enhance the value of your practice & change the way you provide care!
Suppose you’re still on the fence about tossing out your old reporting and record-keeping tools for new technology. In that case, these 2 success stories will undoubtedly push you over the edge!
Blood transfusions have life-saving potential. But when they’re not used appropriately, they can harm patients over and above, increasing costs and wasting limited resources. Equipped with studies claiming that 40% of transfusions in the U.S. are unnecessary, a Missouri provider saw the opportunity to deploy an EHR solution.
It supported their RBC transfusion clinical decisions and helped them enhance patient safety & cut costs. After integrating the EHR system, Health Care reduced its average RBC transfusion rate by 20%. This saved them more than $1 million in acquisition costs while avoiding indirect expenses for blood tests, transfusion administration and overheads.
A US-based healthcare organization wanted to move from its paper-based patient reports and medical records to an EHR system across 40 urgent care centers. The organization wanted to use this technology for improving treatment outcomes and delivering value-based care. The new system enabled their medical staff to virtually deliver prompt and professional care while reducing medical waste and saving the cost incurred on blood transfusions during hip and knee replacements. Later the organization was also recognized with a prestigious award for empowering its people to improve the quality of care using an EHR system.
Rishabh Software can help you develop a custom healthcare software solution that saves time, ensures compliance, improves treatment outcomes and optimizes medical workflows quickly and efficiently.
Capturing the patient information in a digital format ensures that physicians can manage clinical processes and model health patterns for improved treatment outcomes. Take a look at the essential EHR software features that make up the fundamental structure of a successful solution:
Before getting started to develop this system and leverage the benefits, here are some points to consider before successful implementation.
The critical factors that you need to consider when developing an EHR software are:
Continuity of Care Documents & Continuity of Care Record:
The certifications enable EHRs to link the health information exchange in their respective regions to offer a bird’s eye view of every patient record. The HIE then becomes a comprehensive repository of patient information pooled in from different centers in that area and easily accessible through regulated channels that are completely secure.
We use a high-end tech-stack to build a scalable and secure EHR system. It enables you to shift to a mobile-friendly healthcare system & facilitate remote consultations from just about anywhere! You also have the scope for integrating advanced technologies like AI and ML.
Suppose you want to develop a compliant system that runs efficiently on leading platforms. In that case, it is vital that you also know its development cost and timeline.
The final cost to build a Custom EHR system depends on several factors. Our team can help you analyze your healthcare project, understand its challenges and predict the outcomes from the key features you choose. Clarity on the following aspects will also help you estimate the development cost of custom EHR software:
Rishabh Software leverages two decades of industry experience to help medical practices of every size & scope with EHR development to automate their workflows and elevate their quality of patient care to the next level.
