Dr. Sina Aboutalebi of Northstar Dermatology discusses what an EMR system means for his practice and the benefits it holds for his patients.
Online PR News – 30-March-2013 – 3/27/2013, Keller, TX – Keller, TX Anyone who has visited a new doctor has likely had to fill out a series of forms, detailing their medical history. These not only mean more time spent in the waiting room, but paper medical records also present challenges for the medical practice, itself. Now, with the ever-advancing nature of technology, EMR or "Electronic Medical Record" systems are becoming an important part of how patients interact with their healthcare providers. Northstar Dermatology's Dr. Sina Aboutalebi was on hand to discuss why his practice has chosen to use an EMR system and detailed a few of its most important patient-side benefits.
"Introducing an EMR system has been a crucial step in modernizing our practice and helping to make office visits easier on the patient," Dr. Aboutalebi explains. "We are now completely paperless, and provide our patients with the ability to fill our secure medical forms online, well in advance of their visit." Northstar Dermatology, which is located in Fort Worth, also serves patients in the Keller and North Richland Hills areas.
Citing a few of the most important patient-side benefits of an EMR system, Dr. Aboutalebi added this: "Patient ease and convenience is perhaps the most important advantage of them all," reports Dr. Aboutalebi. "Using our online portal, patients have the ability to fill out information, post a question for our clinic, schedule an appointment or view their medical records." This fully-integrated patient portal can now be found on Northstar Dermatology's newly-designed website at www.northstardermatology.com.
Dr. Aboutalebi - who specializes in today's top medical and surgical dermatologic treatments - also explained how his practice's EMR system has enhanced his ability to deliver top-level care: "Electronic Medical Records offer enormous advantages in terms of efficiency, accuracy and security," explains Dr. Aboutalebi.
Asked to speak on how an EMR system fits into the broader picture of Northstar Dermatology's goals and values, Dr. Aboutalebi concluded with this: "Over the past two years, our practice has developed a reputation for going the extra mile and delivering the utmost in personalized care. Our EMR system is just another reflection of that, allowing us to devote more of our time to the people that matter the most: our patients."
