Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

The EHR (electric health record) is a mechanized system for storing a patient's health-related in order. This include clinical information (akin to signs of allergies and medications), demographic information like age and gender and administrative data (like type of health insurance coverage and appointment scheduling). And while some health-care employees may be unwilling to make the switch from paper to digital, EHR has several compensation, mainly when it comes to expediency, emergencies, and finance and safety measures.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Convenience

•    All the way through EHR, doctors in numerous locations can at the similar time recover documentation used for the same patient. This is for the reason by EHR, files are not stored in physical locations, but in databases, making them more accessible to doctors and former medical staff. According to ohi.ca.gov, one of the major amenities of EHR is that it gets rid of the need to sort from side to side and move about heavy, bulky folders of paper documents. Storing, maintaining and retrieving files can all be done minimally with a computer. As well, converting all information to digital will eliminate any occasion need to decipher untidy handwritten documents.

During Emergencies
•    As mentioned above, EHRs are incredibly easy for relevant medical personal to access, which---according to ohi.ca.gov---is incredibly important during medical emergencies. No time is wasted making phone calls to primary physicians or family members in order to find out crucial data, for example, allergies to certain medications. Instead, even if a patient lives in a different state, doctors can simply pull up an EHR to get all the information they need. Also, while paper records are susceptible to damage and destruction during disasters like floods, EHRs are safe from these dangers.

Financial Benefits
•    According to ihs.gov, EHR can make financial management much more efficient for medical institutions, because the registration, billing and collecting records for a patient are all stored in a single location. This helps the patient-care revenue cycle flow smoothly. Also, switching to EHR will significantly reduce the amount of money institutions spend on paper and paper-related products, like printer ink. In addition to being financially beneficial, switching from paper to EHR is also beneficial to the environment.

Security
•    According to ohi.ca.gov, just like with paper records, EHRs must comply with patient privacy regulations laid out in the Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). However, unlike with paper records, which someone could break into an office and look at, EHRs are encoded so only authorized personnel can access them.
