A recent study found that physicians were experiencing burnout from the taxing use of their time within their emails and their electronic health records system. This also equated to higher turnover in physicians. It was found that EHRs contributed to between ten and sixty percent of medical doctor burnout. We feel that 2022 could be the year the EHR becomes your best friend and no longer frustrates you.
For starters, this could serve to ensure the accuracy of payments you receive from insurers. You can accurately describe the patient’s condition and address the treatment. This would bypass the inaccuracies in your EHR process and claim submission. You’ll also be able to access your patient’s information from a prior visit, referring to it more easily and not trying to recall off the top of your head past afflictions or needs. This would also mean that you’re relating to the patient more naturally and with more intention. You can more holistically diagnose and refer to past information in your health assessment. This will also help you streamline the visit and ensure that you’re giving the patient the best care available.
You’ll also be streamlining documentation and cutting overhead costs because you won’t have extra administrative expenses. Your treatment and visit summary will automatically be taken care of.
