How can EHR technology aid healthcare practitioners?

The incorporation of digital technology has forever changed the delivery and accessibility of healthcare. Devices such as medical tablets and mobile nursing stations are facilitating a seamless flow of information, brought about by the availability of electronic health records (EHR). EHR technology was designed to simplify the sharing of data among stakeholders in the healthcare system. But how exactly can EHR technology aid healthcare practitioners.

EHR technology
EHRis the digital version of a patient’s medical records. This is information gathered from several doctors over a period of time, and includes their medical history and clinical information. Patients can view some of this information via secure web portals.

How can EHR technology aid healthcare practitioners?
EHR facilitates the electronic exchange of clinical information among health care providers. The availability of complete and correct health information is especially important in cases where there is a medical emergency. Healthcare practitionerscan access data when and where they need it, so that a thorough diagnosis can be done, and a precise treatment protocol determined. EHR therefore helps to reduce the chance of a mis-diagnosis.

EHR eliminates the problem of patient data being misplaced or lost, which was often the casewith paper records. It also reduces the errors that can arise when transcribing data. The reduction of data errors improves the efficiency of healthcarepractitioners, and contributes to better patient outcomes.

EHR also makes it easier for healthcare practitioners to transfer data to other physicians, as well as to other hospitals or departments.

medical devices that are reshaping healthcare

Is there a solution for technology breaches in the medical field?

Increasing breaches of protected health information has become a major concern for  healthcare institutions in the US.  The trend is worrying, because hackers are no longer content to target insurance companies, but are now setting their sights on stealing patient data from hospitals, clinics, and other health facilities. So the question being asked is this – Is there a solution for technology breaches in the medical field.

Data breaches can be costly for a health care facility, and they can also lead to a loss of patient trust. For this reason, healthcare organizations, must be very careful about protecting sensitive patient data.

So how can health care facilities protect patient information?
First of all, health organizations must ensure that all the medical technology containing patient information is compliant with HIPAA privacy and security rules.

At Onyx Healthcare USA, Inc we ensure that all the medically focused technologies that we provide to medical providers and health care institutions, meet HIPAA privacy standards.

Healthcare facilities should also make certain that the information on all portable devices is encrypted. It’s therefore advisable to ensure that devices such as smartphones and tablets are obtained from HIPAA compliant companies like Onyx Healthcare.

The dynamic nature of technology makes the security of patient information challenging. Therefore in addition to ensuring the security of the technology you use, clinicians need to recognize that they have a personal stake in making sure that patient records are kept secure. Employees must therefore buy-in to a culture that is focused on preventing breaches.
