The Patient Story - Creating A Complete Patient Story In An EHR Environment
Learn how to reverse the growing amount of physician time spent entering data, whilst providing a less complete picture of patient health.
A well-documented medical record is essential to providing quality care and should tell a complete patient story. It should be documented expeditiously, but thoroughly, to enable physicians and other healthcare professionals to make timely decisions based on all available patient information.
In the age of the electronic health record (EHR), point and click medical record templates have improved the capture of structured data, but increased documentation demands and not-so-friendly user interfaces are burdening physicians.
Physicians need tools that help them focus on patient care, not on paperwork.
In this presentation, we discuss:
Addressing gaps and delays in documentation
Maintaining narrative documentation and detailed notes
The benefits of digital dictation and speech recognition
Using a hybrid clinical documentation approach
