Benefits and Challenges of New Age Healthcare Record Keeping Britannia Smith Walden University Benefits and Challenges of New Age Healthcare Record Keeping After completing reading materials and research information my beliefs and support of an electronic health record system (EHRs) is further strengthened. This support includes the use of personal health records (PHR) and electronic medical records (EMR) to provide quality care. There are many similarities with each of these systems and a few differences, but it is clear to me that all of these combined are the future of organized and efficient patient record keeping at its best (Englebardt & Nelson, 2002). Electronic Health Record (EHR) Electronic health record (EHR) is an integration of personal and medical records from multiple sources which allows for improve care and outcome (Thomas, 2009). It is composed of multiple sources that aid in decision support to provide ongoing care.

Electronic Medical Records 1 Running Head: EMR’S AND NURSING EFFICIENCY Electronic Medical Records and Nursing Efficiency Fatuma Abdullahi, Phuong Doan, Cheryl Edwards, June Kim, and Lori Thompson July 22, 2009 HSM 5003 Management of Health Service Organizations Texas Woman’s University Electronic Medical Records 2 Introduction Across our nation healthcare organizations are beginning to implement electronic medical records. Electronic medical records (EMRs) are computerized medical records that are taking the place of paper medical records, which have been the standard of clinical documentation for centuries. The advantages of an EMR are many, such as the consolidation of patient medical information into a single record across the healthcare continuum (Robles, 2009). Further, evidence demonstrates that EMRs improve the quality of patient care by improving legibility, enhancing communication among caregivers, decreasing medication errors and improving clinical work flows as well as billing processes (Robles, 2009). In addition to improving quality, evidence also supports that EMRs save physicians time and reduce costs for ambulatory practices (O’Neill, 2007).
| History Of Managed Health Care In The United States | Medical Insurance | Professor SpeedTuesday AM | Autumn Brooks | | | While I have only briefly been studying Medical Insurance, I have been made aware of many legislations and laws that have moved our Managed Health Care towards a more proactive future. Whereas the first Medical Insurance started in 1860 with the Franklin Health Assurance Company of Massachusetts; Managed Health Care was not put into action until 1973 with the Health Maintenance Organization Assistance Act. This set the foundation for offering primary care for our Nation by replacing fee-for-service plans with more affordable quality care, as well as allowing the consumer to control their own healthcare costs. (Green & Rowell) “The Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973 (P.L. 93-222), signed by President Nixon on December 29, 1973, is the first major health legislation enacted by the 93d Congress.
WHAT IS AN ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORD (EMR) ? An Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is a way of storing patient information on a computer. EMR have a similar structure to the paper-charts, and these contain all the information that is relevent for the treatment and nursing of a patient. The EMR includes both clinical information: such as diagnosis, allergies and medicines; and a demographic information, such as: personal information, for non-clinical use- an example of such information is the patients’ health number that is given to him/her when he/she visits the hospital for the first time. The records contain information that is used for different purposes: 1) Administrative tasks: Registering patients Scheduling appointments 2) Clinical practices (diagnostic & therapeutic decisions): Computerized prescriptions Lab tests Diagnostic measures Progress notes from different healthcare providers 3) Research practices QUALITY BENEFITS OF AN EMR Assessing data from paper medical records is time-consuming because it involves reviewing information manually — record by record.
World health organization believes that electronic medical record will include all individual health information that provides electronic access during patients admission each time. The need for implementing electronic medical record system has been over several years .IN 2004 President George. W.Bush signed an executive order providing incentives for those hospitals who used health information technology. Then came the American recovery NS reinvestment Act , signed by President Barack Obama in 2009 requires health system to have electronic medical record in place by 2014.And also there would be penalities for the hospitals who do not have electronic medical record in place. Penalities would be reduced reimbursement from centre of medicare and medicaid services.
