Technology is growing very fast and everything around seems to be driven through technology. Everything seriously includes everything like cash both at stores, restaurants, parking lots and so many more examples can explain the influence of technology today on our lives. In the same manner, medical practices are also equipped with a lot of technological devices and assistances at every step. A small portion of the technological hold on the medical practices is the EMR. But the EMR systems are not used by all doctors but some. As the technology is growing, one day, all the practices or hospitals will have to accept the EMR for one reason or another and the paper based systems will be vanished.
The first reason for the necessity of the EMR implementation is the same that with the passage of time EMR will become necessary and manual systems will vanish. Various studies have shown that today the EMR is providing the best healthcare facilities and quality care to the patients with its unique technology and it happened only due to such advanced technology. The most important, confidential and high valued document is the patient chart for any medical practice and the code of conduct for the medical profession believes that the complete patient record must be kept with high confidentiality which is only possible with EMR system having electronic securities for the data. The rights of consulting the patient’s EMR must be given as needed and on the other hand, paper based records can never be safely stored as compared to the EMR.
Most importantly, with the EMR system the doctor can review the patients’ performance in cure in a few seconds only and not by reading a big fat paper file in half an hour and so he can change the medications or can suggest some more lab tests. It reduces a lot of responsibilities of the doctors and the complete medical staff involved and so there are very less chances of the human errors regarding treating a patient. To speed up the electronic recording and getting more work through it, most if the EMR software includes voice recognition to enter the data as the doctors speaks and handwriting tool through which the doctor can directly record into the EMR software with the help of some handwriting input device.
