As a medical practitioner, you have likely heard of Electronic Medical Records even if you have not yet implemented them into your own practice. EMRs are digital forms of patient records that provide healthcare providers with all the information they need regarding their patients in seconds. EMRs have become increasingly important in plastic surgery as they allow for increased patient safety and outcomes along with a more efficient way to store and manage patient information.
At PatientNow, we enable plastic surgeons and other practitioners to streamline their practices so that they can focus more on their patients, improve patient experience, and make their services even better. Our plastic surgery practice management software enhances patient safety and increases productivity by allowing easier coordination between practitioners, decreasing the risk of medication errors, and more.
Why EMRs Are Necessary for Plastic Surgery Practices
Comprehensive and Organized Patient Records
Our plastic surgery EMRs can give you a complete, highly-organized view of your patient’s data at the touch of a button. This includes information about appointments, individual treatment plans, medical history, current medications, allergies, and more. Because this information is essential for plastic surgery procedures, this allows you to have a more precise knowledge of your patient’s medical history so that you can increase the safety and efficacy of your procedures.
Streamlined Patient Scheduling and Management
You can improve patients’ experience by streamlining their scheduling using EMR software. Our platform allows you to schedule and access appointment times easily. This can help to reduce wait times and improve patient satisfaction.
Improved Focus on Patient Outcomes
As a plastic surgeon, patient outcomes are your highest priority. By having real-time access to all of your patient data, including medication lists, dosage instructions, and medical history, you can reduce the risk of medication errors. This can lead to better results with a lower chance of complications during plastic surgery procedures.
Increased Interconnectivity Between Practitioners
EMR software can help to facilitate better communication between all the healthcare providers who are involved in your patient’s care at your facility. This can include surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists, and any other medical professionals. This centralized system allows you to share information and communicate about patient needs. This increases the overall quality of care for your patients.
Increased Efficiency Within Your Practice
Increased efficiency and productivity within your practice can result in better patient care because it allows you to spend more of your time with your patient rather than with their paperwork. EMRs allow you to more quickly manage patient records, schedule appointments, and track patient progress. This can enhance the overall quality of your care.
