Does the EHR provide superior patient safety?

The EHR is designed to help providers manage, in a paperless, electronic environment, all aspects of patient care. By moving data retrieval and documentation operations to the EHR, patient care activities can occur simultaneously at multiple locations. It provides a full range of functions for data capture and retrieval to support the patient encounter, review, and follow-up including:

  • Patient lookup and personalized patient lists
  • Problem list management
  • Results notification and retrieval
  • Report retrieval
  • Document signing (in progress)
  • Clinical encounter documentation
  • Clinical decision support
  • Coding support (ICD and CPT)
  • Consult/referral generation and tracking
  • Health maintenance, immunizations, and reminders
  • Patient education and health and reproductive factors
