Electronic health records, or EHR, are a way to keep a complete and accurate record of your patients’ health history across all of their providers. Unlike electronic medical records, they go beyond your office and make it easy to communicate with all of the specialists, labs, and primary care providers that your patients see, as well as letting you easily access documentation for all of the above.
It helps you keep an eye on your patients, creates greater ease of tracking appointments, reduces the chance of medical errors and keeps you on top of their timely medical care. As if all of these benefits weren’t enough, EHR can also help you with another element of care: billing.
Accuracy and Ease
By using an integrated behavioral health billing software, you can have confidence in the accuracy and potential automation of your coding and patient information. Fewer errors mean fewer hassles and less stress for you and your patients when it comes to incorrect claims, errors in personal information, and the potential for resulting paperwork.
Accuracy also ensure that your patients get proper reimbursements. Behavioral health billing software also gives you the ability to run financial reports with ease, explains AZZLY.
Care That’s Deserved
Patients who are suffering from mental illness or substance abuse problems deserve the same level of focused care as any other patient. Choosing to use electronic health records is just another way that you can improve care for your patients and make sure that their treatment process is as streamlined and simple as possible.
Your patients, who may be involved in intense and difficult struggles, don’t need any added stress or confusion. EHR makes it easy for you to collect and present information and keep your office operations focused on what counts: time spent with your patients– not paperwork.
