EHR Systems Named Core Component to National Health Care Reform
Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems have been recognized by the U.S. Government as a core component to national healthcare reform.
According to the HIMSS Electronic Health Record Association, the federal government is expected to announce the criteria of “meaningful use” sometime mid-July.
The study showed transcription costs were reduced on average by 28 percent, with savings ranging from 20 to 100 percent based on the experience of each participating facility with other types of record systems. The net benefit of using a full EHR system was on average $86,400 per provider over five years, with the most favorable outcome $202,200 per provider.
In the United States, over 15 percent of our Gross Domestic Product is spent on healthcare annually.
While the adoption is currently being considered at a national level, studies are still exploring all the potential effects of EHR systems.
Cost reduction and time efficiency is important to every medical facility. With an EHR system, a facility can cut overhead and increase efficiency.
The EHR system provided by e-MDs follows the ever emerging specifications of national EHR requirements. Their solution system was designed by physicians to improve care, reduce errors, simplify business, and is the standard for affordable and integrated EHR systems.
