PRLog - Jan. 22, 2012 - CLEVELAND -- Technology has changed the way many businesses interact with their customers, and the medical field is no different. EHRs (Electronic Health Records) have changed the physician/patient relationship. PatientClick, a Cleveland-based company, with offices in San Diego, has been at the center of this technological revolution due to their user-friendly, web-based EHR system. PatientClick now takes another quantum leap forward by introducing a transcription interface that enables an easy transition from a paper-based system to a paperless office.
Given the encouragement and incentives by the HiTech (The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) Act, for the widespread adoption of EHRs, it would be logical to assume that physicians and health care offices are working diligently to implement EHR technology into their offices. Though EHRs offer benefits such as, searchable patient data, faster availability of lab results, easy access to X-rays, and MRIs, more efficient billing, and more effective patient visits, not all health care providers are rushing to implement and use this new technology.
One of the most persistent complaints from physicians regarding the use of EHR technology is that it takes too much of their time and gets in the way of their relationships with patients. Many doctors complain that using a computer keyboard while talking with patients is inefficient and can be viewed as rude. It is easier to listen while writing notes with a pen and paper than it is to listen while both hands use a keyboard and a mouse. Because of this, many doctors are reluctant to fully implement an EHR system.
Though EHRs are designed to increase physician productivity, in reality productivity often initially decreases for many physicians and health care offices. This is where PatientClick’
PatientClick has made EHR technology easy to implement and use, and they continue to make improvements to their system. The transcription interface is the newest improvement that will help boost physician productivity and break down any barriers that health care providers may have to using EHR systems. Transcription service integration is one of the important aspects of EHR technology in achieving maximum user efficiency, lowering costs, and encouraging the widespread implementation by doctors and providers..
