According to Health IT, 79 percent of all providers report that their practice functions more efficiently after the implementation of an EHR. Still, it's important to consider the ways in which we can continue to use these technologies to optimize documentation practices.
Medical Economics has pointed out that hiring a medical scribe may help to reduce documentation errors. When a scribe is providing the actual process of documentation, a doctor is free to focus solely on the patient and reduce error.
Continued training cannot be overvalued in this light, as well. Ensuring that your medical staff are constantly up to date on the newest features of your EHR will improve documentation functionality as well as overall workflow.
