Coronis Health – Anesthesia
Behind every successful medical practice is a robust practice management and medical billing software apparatus.
Coronis Health works with practices to help them select the best platform for their needs while helping maximize productivity and boosting the bottom line. Because we’re tech innovators with global capabilities, we are intimately familiar with all major EMR software. We execute the coding, then our billing and collections team gets to work. We’re so confident in our billing and coding abilities that we are fully transparent.
What is EMR Integration?
Industries constantly adopt new technologies, and healthcare is no exception. Electronic medical records (EMR) technology, for instance, has become a vital component of healthcare services. However, EMR technology not only requires the proper setup but IT expertise to fully optimize it for hospitals, facilities, and other healthcare organizations. EMR needs to be integrated with the existing programs and applications that medical professionals, technologists, and administrative staff currently use.
EMR integration ensures that hospitals and medical practices achieve better organization and efficiency by streamlining all patient information in one place. EMR integration allows for a seamless flow of healthcare data, such as a patient’s personal information, medical history (allergies, medications, diagnosis, etc.), and test results from one facility to another. This means that a network of hospitals can easily access and exchange patient data among member hospitals digitally through a single platform.
The Importance of EMR Integration
Healthcare organizations produce overwhelming quantities of sensitive data that are critical to any patient’s diagnosis, treatment, and associated outcomes. Hospitals and facilities that integrate EMR software into their healthcare systems don’t just gain the ability to store patient records but enable an efficient way to access, manage, and retrieve patient data.
Since medical practitioners can readily access data whenever needed, hospitals and other facilities can eliminate physical paperwork, thereby reducing charting mistakes and cutting down costs associated with errors and manual data entry. EMR integration, therefore, allows for increased efficiency and organization, improved coordination between physicians and patients, and better patient care.
What does “Full Transparency” mean?
It means you see what we see. Every spreadsheet and piece of data is yours to look over. We don’t hide our data behind fancy reports and buzz words. You see the nitty-gritty. We help you navigate through the data to make the best decision for your practice’s financial future.
Benefits of a Robust EMR Medical Billing Software
EMR integration benefits both patients and healthcare providers. Key software systems can streamline your practice and provide the following advantages:
- Reduce errors compared to paper documents
- Ensure more accurate treatment and diagnosis
- Provide access to better and quicker care
- Offer the ability to monitor results and track data over time
- Improve patient data privacy and security
- Enable data-based decisions
- Enable follow-up support (e.g., reminders, self-care suggestions, weblinks)
- Provide access to records, lab results, and doctor’s notes, viewing of prescriptions, ability to request refills
- Provide accurate and timely data – Data that was previously transcribed is now keyed in digitally. This reduces the opportunity for error and allows for data access in real-time. Data is presented in a steadier and more consistent stream instead of in batches. With data flowing automatically, providers simply have to open the records and check information whenever needed.
- Prevent duplicate tests and conflicting treatments – Since EMR integration allows for timely access to test results, physicians are up to date on previous tests and avoid ordering repeat tests, leading to fewer invasive and expensive treatments. Accurate data also safeguards against performing treatments that may conflict with each other.
- Economical use of space – Because data is stored digitally, hospitals and facilities no longer need storage areas for paper records.
- Lower operational costs – Storing data in one place reduces the need for manual labor and lowers operational costs.
- Optimizes workflow – EMR integration creates a more efficient workflow that allows providers to easily keep track of and manage patients.
- Seamless networking – The digital platform allows hospitals to interface with other medical facilities, laboratories, pharmacies, and various health systems. EMR integration also creates links to other health information because it connects to public health records and other health registries.
- Scalability – EMR integration allows organizations to customize and scale patient records.
- Wider reach – Providers can easily gather and analyze data. This convenient data access allows them to treat discrete populations, improving the overall health of more patients.
- Reminders and notifications – The EMR platform provides communication features that allow healthcare organizations to send reminders and alerts.
- Serves as a research tool – Digital patient records support research and allow physicians to monitor patients and provide better care.
- Improves communication between staff – Accurate, organized, and timely data allows better coordination between staff, physicians, hospitals, and laboratories.
- Caregivers gain more time – EMR integration prevents nurses and other caregivers from wearing too many hats in the workplace. With the help of seamless technologies and software, nurses can let go of certain administrative functions and reinvest that time at the patients’ bedside to provide better quality care.
