Improving EHR Usability Requires Focusing on Four Core Areas
To enhance patient care, leaders must implement tools that allow clinicians to focus on serving patients. Adding technologies that work behind the scenes to capture and interpret the billing and coding details from clinical documentation can minimize burnout and enhance patient safety and satisfaction.
Physician productivity – and satisfaction – is enhanced when clinicians can easily access the information they need when they need it. Too often, physicians are flooded with so much clinical data that they waste significant time sifting through the chart to find relevant details.
Clinicians need workflows that support the automatic identification and interpretation of the disorganized and complex array of medical information from previous encounters, lab reports, inpatient records, and other sources.
To minimize data entry and ensure appropriate information is captured for accurate reimbursement, EHRs need technologies that work in the background to verify billing, compliance, coding, and quality measurement.
