It has been a long day here at the BEI as our team just finished a software training session conducted by Dr. Benjamin.
We have been a paperless office since 2002, utilizing EMR (Electronic Medical Records) programs. Electronic record keeping allows for increased efficiency, fast communication with other medical professionals involved in a patient’s healthcare, as well as safety of vital data. Unlike paper charts, electronic charts cannot be misplaced or lost. It is beneficial to patients and to the environment. We actually wonder how many trees were saved since 2002. Seriously.
Now we are proud to say we are moving up to the new generation of electronic record keeping by upgrading to CloudRecords. CloudRecords is a program based, as the name suggests, on Cloud Computing technology. It will substitute not one but a few programs we are currently using for our electronic record keeping.
