Medical Record Scanning
At Avantix, we understand the challenges that medical practices face in managing their paper-based patient records. Historical patient records are often kept in storage, sometimes offsite, and ‘on demand’ back scanning to service ad hoc requests is common practice.
Digitising medical records can be a complex and time-consuming task, but it offers a number of benefits for Australian medical practices.
Improved efficiency: Electronic medical records (EMRs) can be accessed quickly and easily, which can save time for both patients and medical staff. This can lead to shorter wait times for patients, and it can free up staff time to focus on other tasks.
Increased accuracy: EMRs are less likely to contain errors than paper-based records. This is because EMRs can be easily and automatically checked for accuracy, and they can be easily updated when changes are made. This can lead to improved patient care, as doctors and other healthcare providers can be confident that they are working with accurate information.
Enhanced security: EMRs can be password-protected and encrypted, which helps to protect patient privacy.
Reduced costs: Medical record scanning can save money on storage costs, printing costs, and labor costs. This can free up resources that can be used to improve patient care.
Improved compliance: EMRs can help medical practices to comply with regulations, such as the Privacy Act 1988. This is because EMRs can be easily tracked and audited, which helps to ensure that patient information is being handled in accordance with the law.
Improved patient care: EMRs can help to improve patient care by providing quick and easy access to patient information. This can help doctors to make better diagnoses and to provide more informed treatment. EMRs can also be used to track patient progress and to coordinate care between different healthcare providers.
