EMR Medical billing one benefit or disadvantage?



IINTRODUCED IN EMR (ELECTRONIC MEDICAL SYSTEM)

Perhaps there is confusion regarding the distinction between an EHR (electronic health records) and a system of EMR (electronic medical records); in fact, EMRs and EHRs refer to the same thing and were often used interchangeably.

But the term "electronic health records", was mentioned far more frequently, perhaps in part because of its use by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information (ONC). In the world of reform health care, CMS refers to "meaningful use of an EHR," ONC said clearly use "DES" and "electronic medical records" almost exclusively, explaining "the word" health "concerns a lot more territory than the word "medical." And EHRs go far beyond EMRs.
So here, I will be try explain what is electronic health records EHR and benefits of electronic health records system (EHRs system).

WHAT IS EMR 

An electronic health record (EHR) is an official health record for an individual, which is divided between several facilities and agencies. Digitized health information systems are expected to improve the efficiency and quality of care, and ultimately reduce costs.
An EHR is a systematic collection of electronic health information about a patient or population. The system incorporates several specialized modules, which address hospital facilities - hospitals, clinics, laboratories - having particularly concerned about the patient, but services provided to the patient and medical billing cost associated with current operations and medical procedures
EHR is based on modern technologies that offer immediate benefits in the long term, and automating repetitive processes, pro-activity, streamline work-flows, security and interoperability. It also provides interoperability with systems for health insurance.

EHR









 EHR INCLUDES:

  • Information about visits to health care professionals;
  • Contact information;
  • Allergies;
  • Insurance information;
  • Family history;
  • The state of immunization;
  • Information about any condition or disease;
  • A list of medications;
  • Medical billing;
  • Hospitalization records;
  • Information about any surgeries or procedures performed; 

BENEFITS OF EHRs:

  •  Ability to automatically share and update information across different offices and organizations;
  • Storage and retrieval more efficient;
  • The ability to share multimedia information, such as medical imaging results among locations;
  • The ability to link records to sources of relevant and current research;
  • Standardization easier and patient care services;
  • Delivery of decision support systems (DSS) for healthcare professionals;
  • Less redundancy of effort;
  • Lower medical billing costs to the medical system once the implementation is complete.

Governments from many countries are working to ensure that all citizens have electronic health records standardized and that the records include the same types of information. Major barrier to adoption of electronic health records is medical billing costs.
As disadvantages, we could say that there are high costs and the need of funds to implement such a system.
In my opinion, technology is upgraded by the day, and this is only for the benefit of physicians and patients.
