Today’s successful medical practices are adapting to an electronic evolution in medicine. In an effort to streamline and organize information, a growing number of leading edge practices are proactively making the transition to Electronic Medical Records (EMR) or Electronic Health Records (EHR).
EMR/EHR technology provides numerous benefits to a modern medical practice, including increased availability of records and data, e-prescribing, refill automation, integrated insurance prescription eligibility, increased medical records security through role-based security permission and much more. EMR technology streamlines workflow processes, resulting in a more efficient practice and higher level patient care.
