The role of the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is shifting: now, any support for next-generation business models, such as patient-centered care is key. As more electronic medical records (EMRs) come onto the market,it’s becoming difficult to choose one that will remain usable well into the future.
Tomorrow’s EMRs will need to be interoperable, scalable, easy to maintain, and offer a user-friendly interface and potential for mobile computing.
One EMR, gloEMR from gloStream, can meet these requirements. Below are some of the characteristics EMRs will likely need to have to truly be successful in the years to come - characteristics gloEMR has.
Interoperability. Microsoft Office has been around for decades, and every year Microsoft spends billions of dollars on Office-related research and development. gloEMR is the only EMR with Microsoft Office built right in, which makes the sharing of data simple.
Scalability. It doesn’t matter how small or large your practice is: gloEMR’s Microsoft technology makes it easy to create practice-specific templates for routine encounters, without expensive programming.
Maintainability. Microsoft technology is used worldwide and all IT professionals are familiar with it. gloEMR’s use of this technology reduces implementation time as well as ongoing maintenance.
Friendliness. gloEMR offers a user-friendly dashboard, so one click is all it takes to find, view and work with the most critical patient information. Through the dashboard, doctors can track patient location from admission to discharge, access and share daily schedules and calendars, order labs, refill prescriptions and more. It’s completely intuitive.
If you’re worried that you’ll be stranded by an EMR provider that isn’t in the business for the long haul, choose an EMR provider that protects your investment, such as gloStream.
