Jason C. Steinle, prostate store DC founder of Health and Harmony, PC announced the conversion to electronic health records (EHR) in July of 2010. “We have been converting our chiropractic clinic over to a digital record keeping system,” said Dr. Steinle. The EHR system utilized by Health and Harmony, PC is a paperless, secure system of maintaining practice member data. The system is designed to increase efficiency and reduce documentation errors while providing a platform to communicate with other health care professionals.
“Our EHR system utilizes touch screen technology for accurate note taking capabilities,” said Dr. Steinle. “This puts our chiropractic office at the forefront of technology in the chiropractic profession.” It is estimated that 25% of offices nationwide currently use electronic systems. “We have found that we are better able to serve practice members in Evergreen, Colorado and the surrounding communities with our new program.”
Electronic health records and the United States of America
Electronic health records implementation is being endorsed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) of the United States. The CMS lists several reasons for the push to EHRs including:
• Reducing the incidence of medical error by improving the accuracy and clarity of medical records.
• Making the health information available, reducing duplication of tests, reducing delays in treatment, and patients well informed to take better decisions.
• Reducing medical error by improving the accuracy and clarity of medical records.
