More medical offices and hospitals are discovering that EHR (electronic health records) are the wave of the future. Rather than depending on and managing paper records – which can contain numerous errors and be difficult to share across a large hospital – electronic health records carry a number of benefits:
- They’re easily shareable across multiple departments;
- Medical professionals can run patient queries within seconds;
- Duplicate or incorrect information is minimized; and
- Medical errors can be better mitigated.
As a result, the desire for mobile EHR technology – medical devices that allow nurses, doctors, and medical professionals to access patient information regardless of their location – has significantly grown. Mobile EHR technology frees doctors and nurses from stationary data locations, which makes it possible for them to access, review, and evaluate patient data on the go. Freeing medical professionals from the nurse’s station can help increase patient care, mitigate medical errors, and improve interactions between doctors and patients. Additionally, medical professionals can access patient medication data from mobile EHR technology, thus decreasing the likelihood that medications or dosages will be mismanaged.
In a recent article published at Healthcare-Informatics.com, author Gabriel Perna pointed out that “[the] market for mobile EHR systems, and more mobile health (mHealth) clinical applications overall, isn’t just spurred by physicians. In a survey of hospital CIOs, Black Book found that mobile applications was ranked above cloud computing and clinical analytics as well as business intelligence in upcoming technology urgencies.”
That means Onyx Healthcare the leading solution for medically focused computer design manufacturing – is poised to solve much of the gap between existing EHR technologies and mobile EHR needs. To demonstrate their new technologies, Onyx Healthcare will present at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) in Las Vegas, Nevada. The industry conference will be held from February 29th to March 4th, 2016, and feature presentations from leaders in the mobile EHR technology sector.
