Hospitals and doctors are now creating HIPAA Compliant
EHR and EMR platforms to see patients remotely using telehealth technologies.
This covers a broad range of services from your healthcare provider such as
video, messaging, phone, or emailing.
They are going through software development companies
to create custom healthcare portals.
To prevent future spread of Covid-19 and to visit doctors just by opening your
computer or on their personal mobile device. Patients can now visit doctors
and services can be delivered without in-person contact. This reduces the risk
of the disease that can be transmitted and also gives patients
more flexibility without the need to leave their home. Telehealth is going to go
Here is a comparison chart to understand some of the key differences between EMR
vs. EHR listed below.
Both EMR and EHR help make healthcare more effective and efficient with lower
costs. Telemedicine has increase from
340% between 2015-2018, according to a
survey of 800 physicians.
Telemedicine gives both the doctors and patients the flexibility to schedule a
consultation without the need of worrying about traffic or commuting as long
as they have internet access. Both patients and doctors will be able to start
consultations on time more frequently instead of having patients sit in the
waiting room watching T.V. while waiting for their doctor.
Integrations with medical devices will rise such as Internet of Things, Apple
Watch, Fitbit, and other big techology companies are building telemedicine
gather patient data and monitor patient's health. For example, Apple Watch
can already monitor your heartbeat and easily send your heartbeat to friends
or family through the device.
Most of Healthcare professionals have their own remote patient monitoring
services setup. This will enable your doctor to forward treatment images
such as x-rays, CAT scan, medical history, and medical reports to you or
other doctors to review.
This system sends or receives data constantly from one healthcare agency to
the other and interprets it accordingly. This step is extremely important in
telemedicine if the patient or doctor is working from home. In any case
patients can easily access health-related information through telemedicine
and conduct tests accordingly.
The results can be transmitted back to the doctor to review.
Protecting patient privacy, breach notification, and data security
regulations is critical when building a healthcare product. Not only data
encryption is necessary, there's
healthcare guidelines and standards that the platform must meet. As a
software developement business, we always ensure
all requirements are met and patient data is secure.
software development companies are now
leaning towards creating HIPAA Compliant platforms for hospitals and doctors
all over the world.
Depending on the Healthcare app development set up, you can choose the
telemedicine solution that is suitable for your needs.
If you forgot your treatment plan or how often to take prescribed medicine,
you can just
sign into your patient portal and print out your patient treatment plan
summary or view it online. Telemedicine solutions have provided convenience,
affordablility, and quick access to doctors at home.
