Unfiled EHR Documents and Manual Workflow are Growing Problems
Did you know that 70% of healthcare providers are unhappy with their practice’s medical records management? That’s because managing medical records is time-consuming and tedious. Manual workflow is a problem in today’s connected practice, where efficiency, outcomes, and high-value care are prioritized. Scanning records by hand are inefficient, imperils your EHR workflow, and demands high staff resources that could be better utilized elsewhere. If that’s not enough, manual workflow is also causing a much more serious problem – unfiled patient documents.
There are many steps and decisions to document filing and order completion workflow that are prone to errors, delays, and inefficiencies. Manual workflow is an expensive problem that increases the risk of incorrect, inconsistent, or unfiled patient medical records. This results in documents missing from the charts, information placed in the wrong location, and providers receiving incorrect or inaccurate data. As a result, there are millions of unfiled or inaccurate medical records across the United States’ healthcare system. These inconsistencies put point-of-care patient services at risk, compromising your practice’s ability to deliver high-quality care.
