Electronic Medical Records
An EMR, or electronic medical record, is a convenient way to process medical records in today’s business world. Databases are full of EMRs comprised of SOAP notes, billing information, medical history, and other relevant information. Electronic medical records must be carefully managed, backed up, and stored. They must also be kept secure.
Medical Practice Software
Medical practice software has helped to simplify medical billing process, allowing a streamlined database of EMRs along with access to medical codes. Medical practices are beginning to adopt this type of software in order to cut their IT costs and set up fees and adopt a month by month cost on a secured system. Information may then be accessed from any computer or PDA by authorized individuals. Medical billing specialists are trained in software programs such as these.
