Benefits of EHR

Improve care, increase efficiency, minimize errors, and reduce costs. with Electronic Health Records

Information is the cornerstone of quality healthcare. Physicians across the country, in practices of all sizes, are realizing significant benefits from using EHR technology today. Our goal is to ensure that our community – providers and patients – share in those benefits as well. The message is so clear, that even the Federal Government is offering significant incentives to adopt and utilize this technology, with penalties following an initial grace period.

Among its many advantages, EHR solutions enable physicians to:

  • Gain secure access to a patient’s complete record – anywhere, anytime
  • Make patient-care decisions based on up-to-the minute information from all involved
  • Track test results
  • Prevent medical errors by providing safety checks on prescription dosages, drug-to-drug interactions, duplicate therapies, and a patient’s previous adverse reactions.
  • Improve patient satisfaction overall

Better medicine. Better business.
