The Electronic Medical Record, or EMR, has blossomed as 21st century’s medical record management model. EMR databases consolidate and organize important medical records electronically, including electronic medical claim. Medical practices have been able to effectively and quickly manage electronic medical record, greatly benefiting not only practice but also client.
Almost any EMR system has been able to assist medical practices to reach a higher level of organization, but new medical practice software takes a practice even further. Though an EMR consolidates medical records, medical records are still on separate databases, depending on categories EMR belongs to. Billing records, medical histories, etc., are all located on different databases, requiring multiple logins and often heavy and expensive security and IT infrastructure. Medical software streamlines costs, both economic and time.
The market has picked up on need for medical practice software that simplifies EMR process. That is why finding right medical practice software can be so challenging. On any given day, in any given search engine, keyword “medical practice software” will yield millions to hundreds of millions of indexed pages. Characteristics of good medical practice software include internet access, medical billing PDA, third party billing, digital imaging, reports, and tracking. In addition to these characteristics, medical practices can look forward to cutting overhead costs, including IT infrastructure and additional security costs.
Every medical practice knows that finding a competitive edge also requires simplicity. Medical practices probably do not have extra time to invest in training themselves on new medical software. Not only should it be simple to learn but also simple to install and simple to use.
