Form Digitization – Digitizing your healthcare practice could give your healthcare providers more time with their patients, as well as lessen costs. Converting your healthcare records to digital form gives your practice a substantial monetary reward by Meaningful Use Phase I & II. However, financial concerns aside, digitizing your paperwork will increase your practice’s efficiency!
The National Institutes of Health conducted a study involving over 500 hospitals. It found that hospitals which switched to an electronic health record system experienced a decrease in documentation time of 2.1 % to 45.1% for nurses. Physicians who switched to doing documentation using their PDA rather than paper have experienced a 22.2% decrease in documentation time as well. “Overall, these studies tend to demonstrate favorable results with a reduction in documentation time with computer-based documentation (weighted average, −34.0%/working shifts).”
Recently, Atlantic Health announced that it plans to convert its forms, applications, and other various paperwork to digital form. They stated that physical paperwork requires too much time for the creation of new documents and that attempts to find various existing documents and data, physically, is too time-consuming. “Trial-related forms are filled out manually and routed to different departments for processing and storage. Each department handles the forms differently, so our data has been lacking continuity and is scattered throughout the organization. We have had tiny control over or visibility of our trial information.”
Atlantic Health believes that physical paperwork makes their clinical and drug trial process very inefficient and slow. “It has been difficult to track and report the test information needed to demonstrate regulatory compliance. And analyzing data and trends across multiple trials to maximize research findings and patient care has been unfeasible.”
After converting their physical paperwork into digital formats that are easily manageable by various software and databases, “…Atlantic Health is anticipating a 35 percent reduction in time spent on administrative tasks, which will improve research efficiency and capacity.”
