One of the prime concerns with EHR technology is its contribution towards the improvement in quality of healthcare. And it is also an irony of sorts because the purpose and the concern revolving around every EHR technology is almost the same. At tranquilmoney we realise these barriers that pose a constant threat to the adoption of EHR technology. With our team of dedicated consultants we work towards providing solutions and most of it complements AMA’s 8 EHR priorities. This gives us a clear picture of the challenges that are faced by care providers when it comes to EHR’s usability quotient. So take a look at how our processes and outlook complements AMA’s 8 EHR priorities:
1.Enhance physicians’ ability to provide high-quality patient care: To create a smooth transition into an EHR technology we provide customized EHR solutions to our clients. This enables the care providers to design the interface according to their preferences so that they do not waste time in understanding the layout of the EHR, which takes away a major chunk of patient time when interacting with them. Our support team evaluates the practice of every care provider and suggests changes in our EHR design which will fit seamlessly into their practice and workflow needs.
2.Support team-based care: Our team assesses every client’s practice, analyzes their work flow need, and provides training to doctors and staff to reduce the inefficiencies and increase productivity through team work. Our concierge business model revolves around individual support to every staff of the care facility about all aspects of EHR technology that will enhance their efficiency.
3.Promote care coordination: This aspect is unattainable without a robust technology that can transmit data seamlessly across the health care system, including third parties. At tranquilmoney our interoperability follows the HL7 framework and the client can export and share patient’s comprehensive data simply with a single click.
4.Offer product modularity and configurability: As we have mentioned before our team of consultants evaluates individual practice of all our clients and suggests alteration on the EHR technology that will suit their specialty and setting. We also study the practice of individual clients and advice them on their need for new technology that might help in their practice and configure the same into our practice management software.
5.Reduce cognitive workload: While it is important to have information about a particular disease or symptom it is equally important to have a clinically significant data where the patient’s record does not only grow in size every time an entry of new symptom or disease is made into the EHR system, leaving the care providers to keep searching for relevant data when the need arises. In order to prevent this occurrence we provide real time data with customized reporting and tailor made clinical alerts for better care.
6.Promote interoperability and data exchange: A patient may seek care from a hospital, a physician’s clinic and even ambulatory care facilities and to ensure the data flow seamlessly through all these channels it is imperative to have a strong interoperability quality that can achieve the aforementioned milestones. Our interoperability feature allows care providers to transmit data to any EHR vendor so that the aim of achieving overall care is attained.
7.Facilitate digital patient engagement: Apart from meaningful use requirements, patient engagement is an integral quality that determines the success of an EHR technology. After all what is the point in having a well designed technology that does not support easy communication between doctors and patients. Our cloud based patient portal enables patients to share emails with their doctors and also review clinical data which is shareable. Our patient reminder option allows both patients and doctors to engage via mobile devices for scheduling and changing appointments, follow up care reminders, sharing lab results and patient education material etc.
8.Expedite user input into product design and post-implementation feedback: We realise the need for users to connect with their EHR vendors should an issue arise or they need some adjustments in the existing system. With this we are working towards creating a strong user experience portal where our users can communicate context sensitive feedback with our team but till then we provide all our users access to the request tracker where they can communicate their relative issues with the technology and even place request for new features.
With the introduction of EHR technology into the health care industry, American Medical Association has been working with several physicians to identify the challenges that face the adoption of EHR technology and has hit the nail with these EHR priorities so stick to these points when selecting an EHR technology for you. In our effort to enhance care quality we are constantly working towards providing a comprehensive experience for our users through AMA’s 8 EHR priorities.
