Benefits of Healthcare Software development services through Enterprise mobility
Mobile technology like wireless censors and cell phones are increasingly being used to access & gather health information quickly and efficiently. Mobile apps serve several health purposes such as counting calories, tracking workouts, helping to quit smoking, and counting body mass index. Medical practitioners are deploying mobile applications in health care centers to help them in research of complex medical conditions.
Health practitioners often find themselves dealing with a variety of records – from records pertaining to practice license and credentialing documents to financial and compliance records. But none of them are as significant as health care records (often known patient records) simply because of its clinical and Medical Billing value. While health care records may have practical applications in clinical management, research, and Federal health care policies like HL7 & HIPAA, its holds special prominence in medical record keeping. Thus, the quality of health care records invariably decides the level or quantum of reimbursements for physicians.
Over the years, much like the continual advancements in clinical research and health care delivery system, documenting, storing, and sharing health care records too has undergone considerable change from paper-based to computer-aided, web-based, and networked mode. While the improvement may have helped streamline medical billing, it has also made health records vulnerable to risks of being hacked or leaked to unscrupulous intentions. Coupled with these inherent risks, there is also the feeling that health care organizations have not been keen on investing in resources to protect patient data – the percent of healthcare organizations still to explore data-security options is still as high as 40%. This tendency may be limiting their Medical Bill Reimbursements apart from exposing them penalties for breach of patient privacy.
When health records are detected to have compromised with patient’s secrecy and privacy, it could start impacting negatively on their credibility as well as their good medical billing terms with payers. Therefore, it is important that physicians have a policy to:
- Streamline documenting, storing, and sharing healthcare data
- Save it from being exposed to malicious and criminal intentions
- Protect from being targeted by criminal social engineers
- Allocate enough resources, IT, expertise to data security
Fortunately, We have Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems that seem to have panacea for all medical records-related ills, and contribute to enhanced medical bill reimbursements. The right EHR solutions can create both clinical and practice efficiencies, and can make health care records private and safe to be accessed and shared for multiple purposes that are potentially laden with benefits such as:
- Quick access to patient records from inpatient and remote locations for more coordinated, efficient care
- Enhanced decision support, clinical alerts, reminders, and medical information
- Performance-improving tools, real-time quality reporting
- Legible, complete documentation that facilitates accurate coding and billing
- Interfaces with labs, registries, other EHRs and HIEs
- Reduced need to fill out the same forms at each office visit
- Reliable point-of-care information and reminders notifying providers of important health interventions
- Better performance from doctors, physicians, trauma specialists and surgeons as they are not involved in day to day activities and are more focused towards patient care and their diseases.
- Convenience of e-prescriptions electronically sent to the pharmacy
- Latest solutions like cloud computing system and SaaS enabled EHR’s enables organizations to use all these beneficial services at their convenience and from anywhere
- Ability to control the industry from anywhere and increases performance of each healthcare process.
- Allows staff to get relieved from stress of meeting overloads and deadlines of any types
- Electronic referrals allow for easier access to follow-up care with specialists
