EMRElectronic medical records - Health Information System
Creates rapid templates: The transition from paper charting to computer charting is a common obstacle to EMR adoption for the general practitioner and specialist alike. Practitioner can create electronic charts faster than written or dictated charts, so it reduces the time and complexity.
Automated verification: Patient data is instantly verified upon entry into the EMR, which cannot capture invalid data. For example, a patient’s blood pressure can’t be saved if entered incorrectly. These interstitial checks reduce the review time needed before signing.

Electronic medical records tend to be a part of a local stand-alone health information system that allows storage, retrieval and modification of records. The records consist of the different information regarding the healthcare. Application based infrastructure provides researchers with electronic medical records and standardized clinical report forms, shifting dependence away from paper based data collection tools that are not standardized.
This mode of communication improves the quality of primary care and increases the number of clinical research opportunities. The information exchange between health care organizations encourages the translation of research into primary care practices.
Activity feed: EMR includes activity feed feature that displays a list of recent actions from each user in your practice. Similar to face book’s News Feed, EHR users get a longitudinal view of actions occurring in the practice. Without having to dig through charts, you can review who has seen your patient and what has been done, including visits, labs results, medications prescribed and more details.
Patient Dashboard: A live feed of any activity involving the patient, including viewing the chart, prescriptions and visits. You can see real-time status of the patient with one quick view A button to turn on the patient’s access to the Patient health record. that is Records of labs, medications and other medical documents Messages from patients and refill requests Appointments Patient medical history (PMH) including a profile photo Diagnosis history (Dx), Medication list (Rx), advanced directives, Immunization records.
Schedule appointments: Appointments with patients are scheduled according to the location of the physician. Reminders can be set for the patient and doctor to remember dates for specific tests and preventions to the particular patient.
Internal messaging: This system allows physicians and staff to be in constant touch with each other.It includes the lab admin, billing person etc
Patient summary: Records like- Patient’s Chief complaint, present medical history, past medical history, family history, social history etc. are incorporated within the application for the physician to have all details at one single place Together they help creating a patient summary.
Document management system: All the paper documents that the practice receives, including labs, x-rays and insurance cards. It makes notations or digitally mark-up a document before associating the file with a patient’s record. It Helps in viewing X-Rays and other lab results.
Medical prescriptions: Can look up, search and filter medications by route and strength using NDC-based Prescription library. Most recently and most commonly prescribed medications, along with patient drug allergy information, are prominently displayed on the search screen. Add a custom medication, track prescription history and transmit or print prescriptions with one click.
Patient charting, Diagnosis history (Dx), Medication list (Rx), Advanced directives, Past medical history Immunization records, Automatic CDC growth charts, With summary tabs, get access to snapshot of all the activity on the patient chart, along with past appointments, referrals, medications, labs and more. Starting a chart note from a patient chart is easy to Generate reports and Easily run reports on diagnoses, ICD-9 codes, medications and chart notes.

It Organizes and improves medical office workflow. Creates accesses and manages patient’s records easily. Improves patient’s experience and Reduces paper work Access to consolidated patient information within seconds. Saves costs, time and energy involved in managing the patient records.
Practice benefits from implementing an electronic medical record (EMR) system that simplifies entry and storage of patient information, prescriptions, labs, billing and scheduling.
Electronic Medical Records is a full proof medical records handling system both for a hospital, doctor and patient. There were several challenges faced during the development as it was a big project which involved several modules development. The biggest of which was the transition from paper charting to computer charting. It had to be made easy and user friendly so that both a specialist and general practitioner could easily use it.
We created several dashboards as required in the project and also provisioned automated verification in the application for smoother work flow of the app.
This works as a medical records repository.
