Tablets, such as the iPad, have revolutionized the way many doctors research and exchange information. Often the devices serve as an office on-the-go and mobile reference library when doctors move between locations.
Social networking sites can be great, but they don’t necessarily address the specific needs of physicians. That is why the founders of Epocrates created Doximity, an online social and professional networking site specifically for medical professionals.
People rely on the internet for almost everything and interacting with their doctor is no exception. Patients expect their physician to have an online presence -- one with a patient portal that makes it possible for them make an appointment at midnight or use their iPhone to request a prescription drug refill while at their child’s soccer game.
Touch screens have seemingly infiltrated every aspect of life, but they have had some struggled when it comes to the doctor’s office. Many doctors like the portability of a touch screen device, but often can’t find an electronic medical record that integrates well with the touch screen.
Many physicians feel they spend too much time wading through electronic medical records – time they could be spending with patients. MD-IT’s EMR software has a solution by combining traditional electronic medical records with dictation/transcription services.
In a medical office missed appointments not only leaves gaps in the schedule, but drains resources. Staff has to dedicate time to rescheduling time for those patients as well as juggle existing schedules to account for the change.
With the push to convert to electronic health records intensifying, small practices are finally getting the attention they deserve. The most recent vendor to offer an electronic health record system designed for a small practice is Epocrates.
