Do Electronic Medical records (EMR) help in better approach towards treatment


It's always a debate on how to process the information better and faster in this digital world.

 Similarly, it is applicable to medical data. There has been always a need for medical information to travel faster with integration from different departments so that a doctor may see the patient as one.

 Not examine the patient and simultaneously examine his reports. 

The second scenario is that if the patient is abroad or out of home, he may not carry his records every time.

 In such a scenario, if an emergency strikes, how will doctors access the medical records and past medical history of the patient? In such cases, the medical records who are globally accessible with a username and password are the savior. 




Let’s see how EMR's can help us in our day to day life?

1. A better-informed doctor and Physician:

The EMR innovation gives healthcare providers data in designs that were unrealistic with paper diagrams.

 Essential consideration suppliers would now be able to view and print charts of qualities, for example, weight, cholesterol levels, and pulse following changes after some time. The EMR improves achievement of persistent ailment the executives, avoidance, and screening focuses, as appeared in contemplates that showed improved quality measures. 

Electronic clinical records can give treatment objectives or cautions to remind suppliers when certain counteraction and screening moves are expected or outdated. The EMR additionally gives admittance to data and assets that guide essential consideration suppliers to the best way to deal with the different conditions they experience by and by.

 With improved data to research facility information, there is a decrease in duplication and costs.

 Disease results can be improved, as appeared by a randomized clinical preliminary of several practices that exhibited a decrease in circulatory strain in patients with hypertension who got screening for and counsel on high-hazard drinking, liquor misuse, or liquor reliance through an EMR intercession.

 With meaningful and better-executed use, including standard and consistent data entry in specified fields, the EMR data provide the physician with valuable practice-level information. For example, it is easy with a constant entry in a specific population simple information can be used for practice-level such as identifying patients who have not received pap-smear or PSA check in the Indian population. 






2. Better inter-relationships 

The EMR improves correspondence and connections between family doctors and their multidisciplinary colleagues.

 Diagram rundowns, clinical notes, and meeting letter layouts furnish advisors and different colleagues with clear, organized data. The remedies are in a reasonable and organized configuration, which lessens clinical blunders in endorsing. Electronic clinical records encourage demands and errand tasks to different colleagues. Booking plans are effortlessly gotten to by clinical staff, clinicians, and, at times, patients who may have the option to book arrangements distantly. Electronic clinical records may likewise improve correspondence with patients using understanding entries and individual wellbeing records, which all the more viably draw in patients in dealing with their own consideration.






3. Better Workflow

The impact of EMRs on the work lives of family doctors has been positive, as shown by doctors to a great extent the ideal impression of EMRs. In spite of the fact that the execution of an EMR can prompt an emotional sentiment of expanded time prerequisites by family doctors, considers have discovered that usage doesn't bring about a huge diminishing in persistent access or lost billings. Notwithstanding, regardless of these insufficiencies, examines are developing that exhibit various advantages of the EMR. 

The EMR permits clinicians to see a bigger number of patients through better admittance to thorough patient accounts that incorporate clinical information, which may assist doctors with investing less energy looking for results and reports. The apparent advantages incorporate distant admittance to tolerant outlines, improved research center outcome accessibility, drug mistake cautions, and updates for preventive consideration.

In conclusion, I might want to include that Electronic clinical records improve the nature of care, tolerant results, and security through improved administration, decrease in drug mistakes, decrease in superfluous examinations, and improved correspondence and connections among essential consideration suppliers, patients, and different suppliers associated with care.

Electronic medical records improve the work lives of physicians during their Tele-Consultation  to access the medical records of the patients they are consulting with on the other side of the screen. Electronic medical records improve efficiencies in consultations and review of the case by reducing the time required to pull charts, improving access to comprehensive patient data, writing the new prescriptions, helping to manage prescriptions, improving the scheduling of patient appointments, providing remote access to patients’ charts, and moreover the increase the portability of medical records across with global specialists.

Electronic medical records capture point-of-care data that inform and improve practice through quality improvement projects, practice-level interventions, and informative research.






Docstel wants to introduce EMR practice in India on a grass root level with local physicians and our population so that the years-old practice of carrying bulky medical records is removed and we live in a paper-free world with our medical records which are secure and accessed from anywhere in the world with a click.
