Why We Need HIE Consulting
The health sector has been keeping records physically in terms of maintaining a lot of paperwork but as a result of the health information exchange they are able to now share the patient’s information electronically and this means that physicians and doctors are able to update the patient’s information whenever they get to see the patient and this is done electronically instead of having to keep a lot of records in form of paper. In this discussion, we are going to look at the reasons why we need the health information exchange consulting and how it is able to assist both the patient and also the doctors. The reason why it is important to use the health information exchange consulting is because we are able to reduce the numerous paperwork that used to be dealt with when it came to medical records and also the patients data is able to be accessed easily and also to be read in a very easy way because you don’t have to read the doctor’s handwriting which is normally very difficult to understand.
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. Using the health information exchange consulting strategy has become very beneficial to both the patient and the doctor and this is because they are able to save quite a lot of time because the information of the patient is just a click away from the doctor and they do not need to have to go through so many records before they find the patient’s information.
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.
