Last week, we introduced three design features that make navigation in the Exscribe solution a better fit for orthopedic practices. One of the main reasons other EHR systems do not work well for orthopedic practices is largely due to the complexity in navigating a system designed for primary or general medicine. Today, we highlight some bonus features that make it even easier to get around. Discover our bonus features and determine if your system measures up:
Final Documentation Shortcuts
Completing your final note can be frustrating if you need to add a lot of text or embellishment manually. In many systems, creating this detail in multiple screens is frustrating and inefficient.
By following our orthopedic navigation process and workflow, 80-90% of the note has been completed by the time you reach your final Documentation. This greatly reduces your physician’s time in front of a computer personalizing their visits. Using voice recognition solutions, such as Dragon or MMODAL, also allows for easy navigation with voice macros to complete the documentation in the surgeon’s own words.
Furthermore, in Exscribe EHR, we provide orthopedic-specific phrases or smart text that can be easily selected. This simplistic approach allows for personal touches and language to be added to a note that otherwise can feel generic and robotic.
Multiple Body Parts
An area where most EHRs fail for orthopedics is documenting complex visits or those with multiple body parts. Many systems require a completely separate note or visit to accomplish this task.
Exscribe’s visual body selection allows you to diagnose and document multiple body parts at once. You can select any body part from the model human on the screen. When moving between selected body parts, the system will change the ICD-10 codes presented to the user to reflect the body part in focus. This simplifies the search for codes based on type of visit and body part, narrowed down to the laterality as well. All body parts and their respective codes are combined into a single note in the Documentation tab.
All together, the design features covered in these two posts combine to provide the best navigation experience possible for an orthopedic office’s EHR system. Physicians and administrators alike can immediately get through the system finding exactly what they need, exactly when they need to see it.
