As technology becomes an increasingly important part of our lives, medicine continues to be a part of this innovative transition. Doctors and hospitals around the world are experiencing the benefits of moving away from paper-based systems, however, small and medium sized practices don’t have the finances or technical staff to purchase and support these expensive solutions.
Twisted Ceptors, LLC introduces a cloud based Electronic Medical Record (EMR) solution that, added to their cloud based diagnostic image and report sharing eco-system, provides the same benefits of an EMR that large hospital systems receive, without the high cost and no software to install and support.
Electronic medical record systems were developed to allow physicians from different locations or even different countries to access the same patient information. For example, a patient may give a thorough medical history to his primary physician, but forgets valuable information when visiting a specialist. An electronic record maintains all past information, including diagnostic imaging and reports. Keeping medical records electronically allows for permanent, accurate and easy to transfer information.
Paper charts can only be in one place at a time, but electronic medical records are available to authorized personnel at any time, from any location.
Electronic medical records are stored within a secure database where they can never be lost or misfiled. For additional protection, tools like data backup ensure files are never destroyed due to fire, disaster or other unforeseeable events. In addition, only authorized users may access files.
Allowing patient access to electronic medical records has several advantages. One of the stated purposes of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act that required public and private healthcare facilities to institute electronic patient records was engaging patients in his or her own healthcare.
Engagement in today’s information age means the ability to access, review, and discuss a patient’s own records and results.
Many hospitals have included a patient portal to permit patients to access information related to their care. But how can small and mid-size clinics provide the same access? With our new EMR solution, patients have that access via our patient portal.
Allowing patient access allows patients to take ownership of his or her own care management. The patient feels connected to the clinic and will likely continue to patronize the facility.
Patients can use their own electronic devices to access their records whenever they need or want to do so.
One of the biggest inconveniencies of visiting a clinic or hospital is filling out the intake forms. Allowing access to the system permits patients to enter his or her data securely rather than filling out seemingly endless forms before seeing a doctor.
This also means patients don’t have to fill out the same medical history forms each time they visit or fill out a shot record more than once.
Patients find getting diagnostic studies and reports immediately when posted a very positive feature of patient portals. The patient does not have to wait days for the results to be mailed or wait for the hospital or image center to call.
The MIMIC sharing network is a completely independent and neutral cataloguing system utilizing proprietary technology features that can map, translate and store any diagnostic image format and any style report data. MIMIC, successfully merges these images and reports to provide a single patient/physician view. The network also provides a secure audit and forensic trail of all patient activity for its entire life cycle.
“We are focused on providing the best integrated solution for all Radiology practices while giving access to all points of care. Following the siege of COVID-19, practices are looking for ways to streamline operations through technology and save substantial administrative costs in doing so. We have successfully provided such a platform and are very excited in our live launch on June 22nd”, stated Leslie Purdy, Partner in Twisted Ceptors, LLC.
