Implementing a highly customized Radiology EMR Software modified to fit the specific needs of your practice can completely transform the overall productivity and efficiency levels of your medical practice resulting in an improved level of patient experiences and the practice workflow. Paper-based systems have always had their weak points that not only frustrate the practice staff but also create bottlenecks that slow down the collaboration among physicians and hence take a toll on the quality of patient care delivered.
The sharing and processing of information digitally, through the use of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) Software not only encourages collaboration among Radiology practices but also makes the patient treatment more effective and timely. Here are some of the key benefits of using a Radiology EMR Software in your practice.
ICD Codes specific to Radiology are built-in into the software which help reduce coding errors and later speed up the reimbursement processes.
Radiology EHR Software provide integrated image scanning support that connects with medical equipment and other scanning facilities. X-Ray and CT scan images can be directly processed and shared in the software for better collaboration with other physicians and specialists.
Referral tracking allows the staff to closely monitor the patients to see if they have been attending the recommended appointments. According to a recent research study, electronic tracking accelerates urgent care referrals, resulting in 37% of patients getting expedited care. The survey participants in this case also reported observing a higher quality of care for patients, and lesser ‘inappropriate’ referrals under such conditions.
The application of voice recognition in Electronic Health Records (EHR) Software, especially in the Radiology specialty makes the clinical documentation more efficient. Radiologists can use voice recognition to update the registration processes, progress notes, patient histories, radiology interpretation summaries, and impressions. Using voice commands for data entry reduces typographical errors and ensures all files are updated immediately and accurately.
Pre-designed radiology-specific templates improve medical data collection in a way that the data does not need to be sorted manually and is automatically placed in the right fields. It also reduces errors due to human negligence by providing intuitive coding guidance and greatly saves time during patient interactions.
