The biggest impact that technology has made is in the healthcare industry. Diagnostic procedures have become more sensitive in differentiating disease indicators. Equipment to help transport patients aid the healthcare practitioners incurring injuries from lifting heavy weights.
Medical hub services need to properly store electronic health records for future references. Aside from the fact that these are used for compliance, proper storage also helps in synchronizing information that might be of help to the patient’s treatment regimen.
But, what happens if a patient decides to transfer to another hub services platform? Will such move affect the continuity of patient’s care? Thankfully, it doesn’t, thanks to a certain software.
How do they achieve this?
- HIPAA law ensures creation of Continuity of Care Documents (CCDs)
Continuity of cared documents (CCDs) serve as a centralized health record of the patient. From diagnosis to the interventions and treatment done, all are recorded. The hub services provider ensures that such documents are created and readily available should other healthcare settings need them.
- Cloud-based system allows the hub provider to do three things with the patients’ EHRs
Remember how the iCloud in Iphone systems provide fail-safe support systems for users’ data and profiles? The cloud system in medical hubs work in almost the same way, probably just a bit more complex.
Such system allows the hub provider to:
- Internally sourced for the hub
- Outsourced for external hub operations
- Used as hybrid model
- Automation of services leads to speedy access.
Since most transactions and approvals are now done online, it is imperative that providers also find means to speed up the patient authorization process. Use of software to solicit the patient’s signature electronically are widely used for this reason.
Continuity of patient’s care is not disrupted should you choose to transfer services. So, you can focus more on your recovery rather than on hassling clerical work.
