How does an organization quickly convert an entire office of paper-based forms into an Electronic Health Record? Scanning charts and forms in-house can be time consuming and expensive, but electronic access to patient charts is critical.
Many industry experts agree that becoming paperless prior to or during implementing an EHR provides a more stream-lined and efficient approach. All of your patient charts and related documents are readily available and can be accessed from multiple locations, including the hospital and even a physician’s home. Having real-time access to this pertinent data immediately increases the benefits of your IT solution.
