Implementing an Electronic Health Record (EHR) into a clinical workflow allows medical practices to organize patient records and documents efficiently by providing accurate, up-to-date, and complete information about patients at the point of care. Templates that are customized based on your practice’s specialty make the process of documenting patient treatment plans, notes, and coordinating care easier for physicians and clinicians. With the development and expanded platforms currently in use today, EHRs have certainly helped to increase overall productivity.
However, these EHRs still require you to be tethered to a desktop workstation to complete patient records - eating up valuable time resources. As a productivity-focused company, our team at 1st-Dragon/CME is tasked with finding solutions that help save time, are easy to use, and can be customized to fit into your clinical workflow. Regardless of which EHR your practice uses, we have a time-saving solution that will help you attain your business goals.
Doctors have been using a variety of dictation tools for many years, so voice recognition is a familiar landscape. But there are other tasks post-dictation that must be completed before a patient note can be converted into a viable document, suitable for insurance submission and reimbursement. The dictation note requires transcription, which has its own costs and delays associated with it. Along with essential updates to medical records, proofreading, and the potential for a significant risk of clerical errors, these additional tasks pull from your valuable staffing resources. Many of these issues could go undetected - and delay insurance reimbursement, so traditional dictation methods have been updated with the introduction of speech recognition technology.
Speech recognition solutions use the natural language processing characteristics to allow a physician's spoken words to be placed directly into the EHR data field. By using the power of your own voice, you eliminate the need for clicking into multiple fields, tabs, screens, and checkboxes to record your patient encounters - as we speak up to 5x faster than we can type.
