Patient Care Team Infographic- The Patient Story in EMR
In addition to the doctor, other healthcare professionals contribute to the Patient Story in EMR, and everyone involved must take into consideration the unique nature of each individual patient profile as well as confidentiality requirements. As much as EMR programs provide access to data and add an element of speed, they add a layer of complexity in that there needs to be a human responsible for verifying accuracy, continuity and confidentiality in the EMR. Additionally, as in other industries, the sheer amount of data being made available can be daunting. Medical Scribe, Medical Transcriptionist, Medical Assistant, Medical Biller and Medical Coder are key roles in the evolving adoption of EMR, and the evolution of the healthcare industry as a whole. See our Patient Care Team infographic to see how the different roles interact with the Patient Story in EMR.
