Benefits of 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. One of the reasons why we require health information exchange consulting is definitely to be able to reduce the paperwork that used to be handled in terms of medical records and also to be able to ensure that the patient’s data and information is easy to read as opposed to trying to get the patient’s information from the doctor’s handwriting.
Using the health information exchange has become very important in many health facilities and this is because the doctors are able to access the full medical history of the patient and this makes it easier for them to be able to start treating the patient because they are able to understand their history. 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.
The duplication of services that used to be done with the old system was quite expensive especially for the patient and as a result of the health information exchange consulting the doctor does not need to do previous texts that have already been done in different hospitals they just need to access that information and use it to be able to treat that specific patient, therefore, the patient does not need to go through duplication of tests. 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.
