Since 2009, the Obama administration has offered financial incentives to doctors who use electronic health record systems (EHRs). Some incentives even tally up to $63,000. By 2014 the jump from paper to electronic went up by 75%.
Still to date, about one-fifth of doctors don’t use EHRs. Many still rely on paper records. So, why is this happening? It’s happening because many doctors feel the technology with EHRs is frustrating.
In addition, many feel that EHRs just aren’t patient centered. Other feels there may be a break in confidentiality due to hacking.
Emar Systems can reduce the worry that some doctors have about EHRs. These systems are a server-based electronic administration system designed for doctors, long-term care, pharmacies and assisted living facilities. It automates the process of distributing, tracking and ordering meds. Emar systems help ensure the safety of medications.
Plus, emar systems can reduce up to 75% of labor hours due to charting procedures and record-keeping. It also enhances staff identification procedures and the security of meds. Doctors in residential facilities can reduce the chance of medication errors.
Emar systems automate record keeping and even notify medical staff when it’s time to reorder a medication. The end result is streamlining communication with pharma companies.
The bar code technology used with emar systems verifies dosages of every med and current quantity of every med. The emar system support a paperless environment and makes it easy for doctors.
And because all treatment medication information is stored in a central database, emar will generate routine information, such as medical administration reports and physician orders. Emar is an efficiency tool and a time-saver all around.
