How EMR helps telemedicine?

Electronic medical records (EMR) can help telemedicine by providing the patients with quick and secure healthcare solutions. Read along to find out as to how this works and what would be the benefits.

With the world of technology evolving so fast, it only makes sense to upgrade our healthcare solutions such that they are in alignment with the relief that technology brings to our lifestyle. Electronic medical record system is a great way to document all the medical records of a patient in one place. These records are maintained under a single secure portal that stores the patient’s medical history, immunization status, allergies, vital count, medical test results and other personal stats such as age, weight, and height.

Security on such EMR portals can be strengthened by ensuring the usage of a single modifiable file that can be only modified by authorized personnel such as an individual physician or a health institution.

What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine enables a remote patient to connect with their physician or health institution via a common platform using telecommunication. The purpose of this technology is to overcome the distance barrier and brings home the top-class treatment for a patient who can’t pay regular visits to the medical center. It is also pretty useful for rural communities where a patient can be treated over telecommunication. It is due to this technology, that we see a substantial improvement in the medical care- with the advanced transmission of medical informatics and diagnostic methodologies.

The future of Telemedicine

According to a new report by Grand View Research Inc., the global telemedicine market is expected to reach USD 113.1 billion by the year 2025. The rapid growth in the demand for this technology is due to the fact that more than 63 percent healthcare providers are using telemedicine in some form. It helps patients as well as doctors save a lot of travel time and cost and has led to an enhanced rate of early diagnostics due to the ease of accessibility.

How will a combination of EMR improve Telemedicine?

Close to 90% of healthcare executives have reported that their organizations have already begun developing or implementing a telemedicine program. Combining this with a robust EMR system can prove to be a brilliant enhancement for any healthcare provider. This solution would allow the physicians and medical institutions practice safe medical treatments where they can pull up a patient’s medical history with just one click- leaving no room for confusion of miscommunications. It will exponentially help these institutions stay organized in terms of maintaining their patients’ records quite safely. Telemedicine and EMR will help doctors quickly log into their protected accounts and update the patient’s records, while the e-prescribing solution would help the patients save time on waiting around for a written prescription.
