Approximately 60 percent of ambulatory providers are unsatisfied with their electronic health records (EHR), according to a new IDC Health Insights report. The key complaints are usability and workflow; the paramount concern being lost productivity – 85 percent surveyed said that they were spending more time on documentation and 66 percent cited that they were seeing fewer patients.
Using a referral system, such as MedVoy can integrate with your existing EHR to help fill these gaps
Enhances Provider Communication
Healthcare relies on effective communication amongst the providers, specialist and staff. MedVoy enables the ability to track and manage referrals – even across disparate EHRs and patient management systems. A specialist can understand their cases before they see the patients – allowing them to use their limited patient time most efficiently.
MedVoy’s secure, HIPPA compliant platform has a very lightweight workflow and then uses push/pulls to other EHRs to allow access to all documentation in one place and to help avoid the duplication in procedures – eliminating the onerous data entry and documentation concerns.
Feedback Loops Aids with Continuum of Care
A current constraint with referrals is that they often fall into a “black hole”, where the referring providers do not know what happened with the patient. Using MedVoy, the referring providers can easily look at the referral status, follow up notes, appointments and ongoing patient care.
