Technological developments in healthcare have saved countless patients and are continuously improving our quality of life. Not only that, but technology in the medical field has had a massive impact on nearly all processes and practices of healthcare professionals. RIG helps its clients by digitalizing their data. It helps them in accessing patient’s data through E-records. Here is how it does:
Health Records Digitalization:
RIG helps in maintain the Health Records electronically that replace outdated paper records which is a massive game changer for everyone in the medical world. Nurses and technicians are responsible for inputting patient data into a central, digitized system. Medical billers and coders appointments update patient records with test results and submit medical claims to insurance companies. Not only can patients access their records at the click of a button, but it’s also ensured that mistakes are caught more quickly (without needing to pore over unreadable physicians’ handwriting).
Greater Patient Care:
Electronic Health Records can automatically alert the treating physician to potential issues. These records can be accessed from nearly any medical facility, which is extremely useful for doctors assessing non-local patients.
Improved Public Health:
These electronic records provide invaluable data to clinical researchers, helping to advance medical knowledge and the development of treatments for common health problems. A standardized health IT system can provide insights into how widespread an outbreak is, enabling preventative measures to be put in place much more quickly.
Lower Healthcare Costs:
According to a study from the University of Michigan, shifting from paper to electronic health records reduced the cost of outpatient care by 3%. These researchers estimated this as $5.14 in savings per patient each month. In a large city hospital network, that amount is incalculable.
