Maximizing EHR Efficiencies by Focusing on These 4 Areas
Making EHRs more usable for clinicians is imperative for healthcare decision-makers seeking to address the problem of clinician burnout. As stakeholders move forward with initiatives to maximize the efficiencies of their current EHRs, these four areas should be key targets.
Making EHRs more friendly and efficient for clinicians starts with streamlining workflows to deliver users easy access to the information they need when they need it. This limits the amount of wasted time spent sifting through charts to find relevant information and frees clinicians to focus on patient care. Additional tools that automatically collect relevant details to support billing and coding functions can further enhance clinician productivity.
Technologies that automate manual processes can further reduce operational expenses – and the likelihood of manual error – by increasing the efficiency and accuracy of clinical documentation, coding, and billing.
