Top 10 EMR/EHR Solution Providers - 2018

EMRs and EHRs have taken healthcare by storm by bringing in a new dimension to the industry. They have helped healthcare professionals upload the patient’s information digitally so that it can be accessed both across different departments within the healthcare practice and also across different practices. They help healthcare professionals get a detailed account of a patient’s health information including past illnesses and diagnoses. Also, practices can improve safety and healthcare quality as EMRs/EHRs help them with efficient decision-making through effective communication.

Additionally, EMR/EHR solutions leverage technologies such as AI to provide more sophisticated analytics, increased standardization, enhanced interoperability, and tight linkages with more sophisticated patient portals. This can further help in getting a patient’s healthcare information out of the EMR/EHR silos thereby bettering the flow of information between different providers. Furthermore, the EMR/EHR trends include an increased reliance on cloud computing, use of natural language processing, telehealth, patient registries built into the EHR workflow, wireless remote outpatient monitoring, improved clinical decision support, and larger shared databases for comparative effectiveness research (CER).

Despite the advantages, practices are still double-minded due to a variety of reasons. The security of both EMRs and EHRs are still a source of worry for both healthcare providers and patients. With healthcare regulations in a state of constant flux, providers often find it a hefty task and resort to traditional methods wherever they can. Additionally, with healthcare professionals spending more time updating their records on the system, the doctor-patient relationship is getting negatively affected.

The promise offered by EMRs and EHRs can transform today's ailing healthcare system. However, healthcare practices need to partner with the best-of-breed EMR/EHR solution providers to unleash the true value of EMR/EHR solutions.
