INNOVIO’s Electronic Health Record
Our system has been designed with direct input from healthcare professionals to help you with these key items below.
Comprehensive view of the patient – Our system enables you to have dynamic patient-centered records that track the care continuum over the person’s interaction with you, in sickness and health. Having a single, continuous record for a patient provides a holistic view of overall health for better diagnosis and lifetime treatment.
Better coordination of care – With digital records, physicians and clinicians can more easily coordinate and track patient care across practices and facilities. For example, one of our clients offers a “one-stop care” system that provides all the services a patient needs—office visits, testing, surgery, hospital visits—under one roof so services can be coordinated and scheduled over the course of a single visit, rather than time-consuming multiple visits. Clinicians across specialties and disciplines also collaborate on patient outcomes as a team to ensure better care.
Sharing information – The ability to share information across disciplines, specialties, pharmacies, hospitals and emergency response teams as well as have on-demand access to charts via mobile devices allows for better and more timely decision making, particularly in critical situations.
Streamlined workflows – EHRs increase productivity and efficiency while cutting down on paperwork. Forms entered by Nurses and Physician assistants, created efficiently in the system, are instantly available for review by other physicians using our efficient workflow and future updates are only a few additional clicks. Patients and staff have fewer forms to fill out, leaving clinicians with more time to see patients. Referrals and prescriptions can be sent quickly, cutting wait times for appointments and pickups. Automatic reminders can tell patients when it’s time for annual checkups or alert them as they approach milestones that require regular screenings. With integrated patient tracking, billing and insurance claims can be filed in a timely manner.
The power of data – Continuous data collection allows for greater personalization of care, allowing providers to address health issues in a preventive manner. Also, ‘big data’ analytics and aggregated patient data may be able to alert providers to larger health trends such as potential outbreaks and which flu strains are prominent during each flu season.
Greater efficiency and cost savings – Digital records and integrated communications methods can significantly cut administrative costs, including reducing the need for transcriptions, physical chart storage, coding and claims management, as well as facilitating care coordination and reducing the time it takes for hard-copy communications among clinicians, labs, pharmacies and health plans.
Reducing error – Digital records allow for better tracking and more standardized documentation of patient interactions, which has the potential to reduce error. With digital paper trails, illegible handwriting in clinicians’ notes or prescriptions is no longer a problem and coding for procedures or billing is easier. Integrated systems can also be set to flag drug interactions and other indicators of potential harm.
Used to its fullest potential, electronic health record keeping will improve patient care. Healthcare providers will be able to spend more time on treatment instead of tracking records. Electronic health record keeping will also allow healthcare providers to detect patterns and share information in ways that were not previously possible, and that can lead to faster, more effective cures.
