Electronic Medical Records Management

One of the most common complaints from physicians and ancillary staff is the lack of communication to effectively contend with future needs of the patient. In addition, medical personnel dedicate significant time to validating the patient’s insurance and manually completing forms for compensation. It is often very difficult to keep up with the ever-changing rules of the individual insurance carriers. Understanding the capabilities of an electronic health records system (EHRS) and how to use it effectively can be crucial to handling these issues and improving workflow. This seminar will assist medical personnel in understanding how to use an EHRS to improve revenue, control costs, gain efficiency in work flow, and meet regulatory requirements.
