Why go mobile with your electronic health record?

go mobile with your electronic health record

It’s possibly not too difficult to imagine that we will mostly live in a mobile world in the future but for now, here are 10 reasons to go mobile with your EHR:

  1. You can have the records in your EHR follow you around instead of being tied to a desk.
  2. You can look at your patients while consulting with them instead of staring at a computer screen.
  3. You can save real estate that servers and computers occupy, if not paper records.
  4. You can get access to medical records from anywhere including Antarctica – you simply need to be networked.
  5. You can securely message with staff attaching medical charts instead of calling them or getting paged.
  6. You can complete your notes from home, hospital or even the parking lot.
  7. You can use your mobile EHR as an alarm system to alert you to do the right things at the right time.
  8. You can save money by not having to take backups and hiring IT staff.
  9. You can potentially see patients virtually, from anywhere.
  10. You can prescribe medications from anywhere.
