Lancaster Family Medical Center is Going Paperless
Leola Family Health Center plans to go paperless through implementing an electronic medical record system. The Leola based practice recently purchased a system that will allow patient records to be stored in a digital format. Physicians will now be able to conveniently access patient records from tablet computers which they will have with them in the exam rooms.
An electronic record system offers many benefits both to physicians and to patients. Physicians no longer have to expend valuable time and energy finding paper charts, organizing their contents, and re-filing them when they are finished. All records will be available to them at a push of the button, allowing more time for the physician to concentrate on patient care. Electronic records will also offer increased access of medical information to patients. In time, it is the hope of Leola Family Health Center to offer a patient portal, where patients can log into a secure web page and access test results, post messages to their doctor and even schedule an appointment.
Electronic records helps to keep the office environment organized and clutter free. This new approach will decreasing the amount of time patients have to wait to receive test results, have referrals made and get responses to phone inquiries. Electronic records also decreases the amount of waste generated. Documents that use to be printed out on paper will now require no paper. Even faxes can be received electronically.
Leola Family Health Center began the process of researching electronic medical records several years ago. Much research and hard work went into electing the best course of action for implementing this system. Leola Family Health Center is excited about the benefits of electronic records and excited to provide quality and effective patient care now and for years to come.
