Due to fast-changing regulations, payment models and patient expectations, independent medical practitioners face a deluge of challenges and physician burnout is becoming a common phenomenon. Technology plays a big role in having a more manageable practice. There are EHR platforms that offer services to make the business of running an independent practice easier right from delivering care, getting paid and engaging with patients.
Solving the right problems with technology
There are multiple digital mandates to facilitate a greater and more seamless flow of information within a digital health care infrastructure. Today for an EHR platform to be successful, it is not enough to offer a great customer experience for all the three stakeholders of an EHR – Patient, Provider and Payer. The EHR service providers should consider several factors like availability at all times, scalability, interoperability, data analytics, integration with third-party vendors, getting the solution with the right type of features for industry certifications, and mapping the system to adhere to International codes for classification of diseases.
To make this possible, it is important to understand the kind of technology that is required to build a modern EHR platform. For example, with APIs, legacy healthcare systems can be reoriented, and datasets, as well as functionalities can be defined into composable independent components. The underlying technology for this kind of platform is microservices architecture.
