Advantages of An Electronic Medical Record

Tired of flipping through thick paper charts to find what you’re looking for in a patient’s medical history? Not enough room to store physical patient charts in the medical office or clinic? If the answers to both these questions are yes, then converting your patient medical records into a digital form is for you! Advances in technology has allowed for the conversion of physical paper charts into an electronic or digital form.

Electronic medical records

Innovations in computer software and hardware can transform the medical information on paper into a database that is managed digitally. A digital medical record reduces physical space needed to house these documents. Having an electronic medical record enables multiple users to access a patient’s information at the same time. This means that more than one health care provider can collaborate by viewing, editing, and auditing the medical record simultaneously. Electronic medical records can be “backed-up” easily at another location so that no data or information is lost or damaged. Digital form of the records also makes it easier to provide copies to patients.

How to transform paper records into a digital format?

One way to convert physical medical records into a digital form is to scan the paper files into an electronic format. A high resolution imaging software is required to ensure that the electronic documents are readable. After scanning all paper records, the physical charts will need to be appropriately discarded in a secure way. Transforming your paper records into a digital format this way is expensive and time-consuming.
