As a unique and fast-paced healthcare environment – the ER demands certain things from a successful EMR solution. At the same time many of the integral features of a powerful EMR make it the perfect solution for ER settings.
What are the main benefits of an EMR within the ER?
– Complete and fast information sharing: nothing is lost, forgotten or overlooked. This means less room for error and improved patient care at every point of their journey through the ER.
-Customizable patient charts that can be viewed at any time and point, by any caregiver responsible for a specific patients care. This provides a 360 view of the patients time in the ER and allows for full coordination of care between caregivers and other departments.
-Connection of the EMR to medical devices means real-time collection and recording of a patient’s vital signs, and makes this information readily available to caregivers.
