Physicians are dedicated to helping take good care of people. It’s a noble pursuit that most doctors dedicate their lives to and spend decades working to perfect. But nothing adequately prepares a physician to run a clinic, or to manage something as complex as an Electronic Medical Record system. For both of these tasks, it’s a learn-on-the-job scenario and one that can distract physicians and their staff from their core mission of caring for patients.
Clinics are obligated by law to keep patient records secure. But it’s not as simple as placing them under lock and key, for the records must also be instantly accessible to a variety of healthcare professionals, inside and outside the clinic setting. GE Healthcare provides an elegant solution for clinics seeking to integrate EMR with revenue cycle and practice management solutions.
During the implementation phase, HealthCo runs through a checklist of nearly 200 different needs that clinics may have for EMR. Some physicians prefer to use one template over another, or prefer to use speech recognition software—whatever the need, we find a working EMR solution for our customers.
