Patient check in is one of the most important processes in any clinic’s workflow. However, many orthopaedic clinics struggle to master their patient intake process. When patients show up, they fill out a long and complicated patient sign in sheet—then they wait for that information to be copied and filed by the front desk staff before they can see their physician.
Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Electronic Medical Record (EMR) software are supposed to make managing patient data faster, easier, and more accurate than the old hardcopy records systems medical practices used to rely on. However, many orthopaedic surgeons and practice managers seem to have problems with EHR systems—running into recurring issues that cause delays and impact the quality of care that they can provide their patients. This is part of the reason why organizations such as Software Advice created their EHR Buyer’s Guide to help healthcare facilities choose the right EHR system for their needs.
