EMR, a lot of practices are asking about how patient portals work. HealthTec’s EMR allows easy access to patient’s data, services, and contents that typically provides communication services between the patients and the healthcare providers. HealthTec allows the patients to gain access to their medical information through a web connection with the use of a secured username and password.

The patients can log into the portal systems of the EMR to check for their appointment schedules, to schedule an appointment for clinic visits, to check for their laboratory findings, to check for their statement of accounts, or to request for a refill of prescription. Healthcare providers are also given the privilege to be in touch with their own patients and send messages such as reminders for check-up, laboratory results and statements as well as send important information regarding the patient’s medical records to other physicians who are attending the patient.

“HealthTec’s EMR is Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act compliant to make certain that all of the patient’s medical information are secured and are disclosed only for medical and legal purposes within the network of direct providers of care,” Said Vance Nelson, President of HealthTec software, Inc. Confidentiality of the doctors’ and nurses’ notes remains intact and is not shared with the patient. The physician has the right to choose which information regarding the patient’s medical records is to be shared with the patient.

The EMR also enables continuity of care given by the physicians coming from different fields of specialty at different locations. Because the patient’s files are easily accessed, doctors can view what medication was prescribed or what diagnostic test was ordered by the other attending physician. In that way, the likelihood of doubling the medication dosage and laboratory and diagnostic requests are avoided.

It’s not only the physician and patients who will enjoy the benefits of the EMR but the administrative and business office staffs too. They don’t have to wait for the patients to fill in necessary information on the data sheet since patients can do this at the luxury of their own home and that all pertinent information are made ready prior to their scheduled visit or hospitalization.

As more and more consumers are demanding automation of almost all aspect of their lives especially those that involve data storage, medical billing and medical records, healthcare providers and medical practitioners are switching o from the conventional paper-based medical records as they aim to provide quality patient care and render premium customer services to their clients.
