EHRs to PHRs: What it means for our National Healthcare System and your Clinic
The Obama Administration has been working hard to reform our national healthcare system. Already they have invested more the $19 billion dollars in order to ensure its success. Their main goals centers on the implementation of Electronic Health Records (EHR) throughout the healthcare landscape. This goal has helped to ensure that EHR documentation like that provided by Future Health is here to stay.
For all those out there who have already adopted an EHR into their practices, I congratulate you on already seeing the benefits of your decision. But for all those out there who have not yet made this technological leap, I implore you to get aboard quickly before it is too late! EHR documentation assists chiropractors in providing their clients with the highest quality care possible through the implementation of better case management and alerts. This system improves the current system of chiropractic by utilizing communication with other healthcare professionals.
The Rise of PHR
Why do patients want PHR?
How does the PHR system work?
Since advancing technology is becoming a more and more an acceptable means of transmitting secure data, patients who know their healthcare information is secure and protected will want this technology utilized. This is where the true beauty of the PHR shines: the patients can choose who has access to their information including what is published for all to see and what is kept private. As an example, some patients are comfortable trusting in their family general practitioner or chiropractic physician to safely and securely keep their records on file in the clinic's EHR. When needed, the patient can simply request that the clinic electronically send pertinent data to the next health care provider or specialist involved in the case. The patient selects the storage location based on preference.
