Yonkers (NY) – Access of records for the multi-location multi specialty practice of over 20 physicians, is easier for Dr. Sindhwani since the implementation of OmniMD EMR – Electronic Medical Records and Practice Management system. One can see the changes in the workflow of the clinic, now you will find physicians and nurses carrying Tablet PCs or some handheld devices in the hands, all the paper work and bundles of files have vanished from the clinic and they edit the records on notebooks. Lab tests done a week back have been integrated with EMR and are available right there on patient chart.
Being a multi-location facility with specialties like Cardiology, Family Practice, Pediatrics, Internal, Medicine, Gastroenterology, Orthopedics, Pain Management, Ophthalmology, General Surgery, Podiatry, Allergy and Immunology, Occupational Medicine and Endocrinology, it was imperative for DOCS to choose an integrated EMR and Practice Management solution that was easy to use, robust, and accessible from multiple locations.
Dr. Rajeev Sindhwani Director Docs Medical Group says, “OmniMD EMR and Practice Management has contributed immensely on both the physician office and administrative aspects of the Practice. The business case for EMR is based not only on its ability to lower costs, increases revenue and improves the efficiency but also on its role as a tool to enhance the quality of services provided.”
The whole practice is apparently on network, pulling up records from a centralized server and editing them on their respective Tablet PCs. The OmniMD EMR has been integrated with the hospital information system and an interface has also been established with laboratory center.
Implementation of OmniMD electronic medical records and practice management has reduced the amount of support services and not to mention reduction in the number and cost of errors. Doctor can now save his favorite prescription and need not to write again same for different patients; even more impressive is that, prescription can be sent directly to the local pharmacy automatically.
After the integration of OmniMD EMR, Docs Medical Group’s patient also expressed their satisfaction, as now they don’t have to wait too long, and also not required to fill long paper form at the front desk.
And from Docs point of view OmniMD EMR and Practice Management has helped them in saving considerable amount. Saving from reduction in ‘no-shows’, accurate coding, faster documentation and billing, immediate saving result from elimination of real estate space required for proper records. Before the implementation of EMR and Practice Management physician’s tend to miss some procedures which were performed on patient while billing, but OmniMD EMR has reduced this error up to a great extent by generating automatic billing and taking care of all ICD and CPT codes.
Hospitals and Practices are increasingly looking to information technology solutions to help deliver better quality patient care while containing costs. And Electronic Medical record companies are trying to develop best possible solution and services by keeping in mind the current trend of healthcare industry.
