Understanding the Four Pillars of EMR & EHR Software Development

An electronic health record (EHR) is a digital version of a patient’s chart which enables authorized users to access and edit patient information in real time, and, unlike an electronic medical record (EMR), provides a more comprehensive overview of a patient’s medical history. EHRs are designed to be shared with miscellaneous organizations involved in patient care, including private practitioners, medical imaging facilities, laboratories and emergency medical services providers, while EMR solutions are intended for internal use only. To unlock the value of health data digitization, several issues should be considered:

Reinforced Security
  • protect patient information through continuous security audit, end-to-end data encryption and compliance
Smooth User Flow
  • optimize EHR and EMR system feature set, simplify UIs and introduce multiple data input options — i.e., scanning or voice recognition, — to reduce employee learning curve and streamline workflows
Cost Optimization
  • choose the right technology stack to ensure scalability, extensibility and portability of medical software and reduce maintenance costs
Interoperability
  • eliminate information duplication and enable a frictionless data exchange between mobile and web-based EHR software and other healthcare IT systems

EMR & EHR Solutions: Essential Features to Meet the Primary Needs of a Clinical Institution

Although healthcare organizations’ spending on EHR development is on the rise, over 70% of care providers admit to not using the applications to the full capacity — due to cumbersome data entry, lack of EMR and EHR integration with medical equipment and limited data sourcing, processing and visualization capabilities. Therefore, the indispensable functions of custom or SaaS-based EMR and EHR solutions include:

  • Electronic document module supporting simplified creation and management of health-related records
  • Workflow management functionality for increased productivity
  • Electronic prescribing module integrated with pharmacy software
  • Advanced access control mechanisms based on user roles and biometrics technology
  • Integration with laboratory software enabling collaboration between laboratory technicians and primary healthcare providers
  • In-built communication module featuring live chat, file sharing option and patient support
  • Dashboards with robust data sourcing, visualization and reporting capabilities
  • Appointment scheduling & billing functionality for increased payment transparency and patient convenience
