Benefits of HIE Consulting
The health sector has been keeping records physically in terms of maintaining a lot of paperwork but as a result of the health information exchange they are able to now share the patient’s information electronically and this means that physicians and doctors are able to update the patient’s information whenever they get to see the patient and this is done electronically instead of having to keep a lot of records in form of paper. In this discussion, we are going to look at the reasons why we need the health information exchange consulting and how it is able to assist both the patient and also the doctors. The reason why it is important to use the health information exchange consulting is because we are able to reduce the numerous paperwork that used to be dealt with when it came to medical records and also the patients data is able to be accessed easily and also to be read in a very easy way because you don’t have to read the doctor’s handwriting which is normally very difficult to understand.
The strategy of health information exchange is very crucial and has really assisted the patients and also the doctors since the doctor is able to access the full medical history of the patient and this makes it quite easy for the doctor because they know where to start from. This strategy has become very beneficial to both the patient and the doctors in terms of saving time and this is because the process is digitised and only by a click the doctor is able to access the full data and information about that particular patient, therefore, they do not need to spend a lot of time when it comes to looking for the records of the patient.
Another advantage of using the health information exchange consulting is the fact that you are able to avoid duplication of services and this means that for instance when a patient goes to a different hospital the doctor does not need to start doing fresh tests if the tests were already done in a different hospital and therefore the doctor just needs to access the information of the patient and use the test that was done in the previous hospital to be able to treat the patient. Due to the fact that the health information exchange does not require any paperwork because it is an electronic system and it is done digitally it means that we are able to encourage a green environment and the processes has also made exchanging of information and medical records to be much easier and less expensive for both the individuals and also the hospitals.
