5 Common Misconceptions About Implementing an EHR Platform

5 Common Misconceptions About Implementing an EHR Platform | Health & eHealth | Scoop.it

As manager of the front office of a small healthcare practice, it’s your responsibility to do your research. Since 2009, when the HITECH Act mandated the adoption of EHR and supporting technology, administrators have been tasked with finding the best EHR solution for their practice. It’s important to note that if you have formed preconceived opinions about EHR features and functionality, you may end up with a platform that doesn’t actually meet your needs as well as one could.


In an effort to avoid patient record errors and keep costs down, here are five common misconceptions about implementing an EHR, which will help your small practice remain as efficient as possible.


1. EHRs aren’t easy for an entire practice to adopt.

A common pushback of implementing an EHR solution is that it will be too complicated, time-consuming, and counterproductive for all of the practice staff to adopt a new technology and process.

The good news is, you’ve got options. There are flexible EHR platforms that will actually make your job a lot easier, fast. Furthermore, specialty specific EHRs will automatically adapt to your practice specialty and ensure an accurate workflow.


2. An EHR solution will be myopic.

While people may think that whichever EHR you choose will serve one function, comprehensiveness is actually a major benefit that you can take advantage of.

Comprehensive EHR platforms will enable you to perform a number of activities — like scheduling, charting, and E-prescribing — from one central location. Not only will this allow you to fulfill all of your practice’s needs from a single place, but it’ll help you avoid using disparate systems and keep costs down.


3. Your process will not improve.

If you think that implementing an EHR platform will decrease the efficiency of your workflow and your practice’s profitability, think again. Using a comprehensive, closed-loop system will actually enhance communication and transparency among your staff, boost productivity, minimize risk for error, and ultimately ensure better patient outcomes. The right EHR solution will simplify and streamline your process.


4. You will see no ROI.

If you’re hesitant to adopt an EHR because you don’t think you’ll see a return, know that this route can actually save you significant time and money. Improving your workflow efficiency with an adaptable EHR will allow you to optimize your resources and run a much more productive practice.

Remember that a cost-efficient EHR is an option. Also, some platforms even include practice management, which can help enhance transparency in your practice and measure ROI instantly.


5. EHR implementation will take away from the patient experience.

Your patients require your utmost attention — and an EHR can help you ensure your patient relationships are strong. Flexible, cloud-based, specialty-specific EHRs will help you uphold the level of personalization and comprehensiveness that your patients expect, and also minimize errors and improve patient satisfaction.

Understanding that an EHR solution with these capabilities is step one; opening the door to a brand new solution is step two. If you’re ready and willing to see how an EHR platform can benefit your practice, start your free trial of Practice EHR by clicking below!

Benefits of an EPCS Certified EHR

Benefits of an EPCS Certified EHR | Health & eHealth | Scoop.it

In response to the nation’s climbing prescription drug abuse problem, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) finalized a rule in 2010, permitting electronic prescriptions for controlled substances (EPCS). Today, e-prescribing is legal in all 50 states, and becoming increasingly popular. According to SureScripts’ 2015 National Report, the number of e-prescriptions have doubled since 2012.

 

So why is EPCS becoming more and more of a standard practice? EPCS is a step in the right direction to fighting fraud and abuse of controlled substances and provides numerous benefits for physicians and their patients, outlined below.

 

Benefits of EPCS for Small Practices

Makes prescribing more efficient and secure - With EPCS, physicians can send prescriptions for patients directly to the pharmacy from within the EHR at the point of care, instead of having to handwrite a prescription that could potentially get lost or stolen or prompt a phone call from a pharmacist needing further clarification.

 

Reduces medication errors, fraud and abuse - By eliminating the need for paper prescription pads, EPCS ensures prescriptions are getting into the right hands. EPCS has also been proven to improve prescription accuracy by preventing drug to allergy interactions, incorrect dosing, illegible prescriptions, etc. With EPCS, long gone are the days pharmacies receive scripts they can’t read.

 

Added convenience and safety, for physicians and patients - With EPCS, physicians can confidently and seamlessly e-prescribe controlled substances to their patient’s pharmacy. EPCS ensures the prescription reaches the pharmacy and the patient can easily pick up their medication, also improving patient medication adherence.

 

EPCS has proven to be beneficial for physicians and although legal, EPCS has not been mandated nationwide with the exception of four states. The following have passed legislation, mandating electronic prescriptions for controlled substances:

 

Virginia New York Minnesota Maine


Interested in EPCS?

Many small practices realize the benefits of EPCS and want to partake, even if not required by their state. To begin e-prescribing for controlled substances there are a few initial steps: (1) use an EPCS certified application (EPCS certified means the application has completed testing and certification through a third party auditor, required by the DEA) and (2) complete the provider authentication process.
