Why We Need HIE Consulting
Health information exchange is very important to our day to day lives and this is because it has transformed the health sector rapidly due to the way that patients are able to have their records to be shared and input electronically and therefore doctors or physicians are able to access the patients data online which makes it a very easy process of communicating the patient’s information. In this talk, we are going to have an opportunity to discuss the various advantages of the health information exchange and how it is of benefit to both the patient and also the physician. One of the reasons why we require health information exchange consulting is definitely to be able to reduce the paperwork that used to be handled in terms of medical records and also to be able to ensure that the patient’s data and information is easy to read as opposed to trying to get the patient’s information from the doctor’s handwriting.
Another importance when it comes to the health information exchange is the fact that you are able to get the full medical history of the patient and therefore when a doctor is dealing with the patient they are able to know where the patient is coming from and therefore they do not have to ask a lot of questions since they are able to see the history of the patient. The use of the health information exchange consulting has made to the process of accessing the patient’s information to be very easy to access and this is because the system is digitised and therefore the patient’s information is just a few clicks away and this has been able to ensure that you save time for both the patient and the doctor.
This method of health information exchange has become quite beneficial to many health facilities and this is because they are able to save on numerous resources because they are able to avoid duplication of services meaning that when a patient has test results from a specific hospital when they visit a different hospital the doctor does not need to do the same tests again since the information about the test is on the system and the doctor just needs to access the information and be able to treat the patient. Due to the fact that the health information exchange does not require any paperwork because it is an electronic system and it is done digitally it means that we are able to encourage a green environment and the processes has also made exchanging of information and medical records to be much easier and less expensive for both the individuals and also the hospitals.
