Accurate Data is Critical to Patient Safety When Switching to a New EHR
Electronic Medical Record (EMR) conversion can be challenging. Moving from paper charts or a legacy system to a more comprehensive, enterprise-wide solution requires a partner with deep expertise in healthcare data management. Much of the valuable patient information in the legacy EMR resides in unstructured, or free-text format, which is difficult, if not impossible, to migrate electronically to the new Electronic Health Record (EHR).
Why working a trusted EMR Conversion partner is so important:
- Having accurate patient data available to clinicians after an EMR conversion is critical to patient and physician satisfaction to build trust in the new system.
- A missing or incomplete listing of patient medications or allergies can lead to prescription errors and adverse reactions.
- Gaps in availability of a patient’s history can create challenges ranging from patient care, safety, and satisfaction to disruption in billing and reduction of the number of patients seen.
