Ochsner Clinic, a success story...

E-mail Print PDF
Ochsner Clinic, a success story...The Ochsner Clinic opened its doors in 1942 and remained a New Orleans specialty-based practice for more than 40 years. During that time, each patient had just one medical record to which all physicians contributed. In those early years, patients’ complete clinic records accompanied them to their appointments, and care providers had ready access to everything known about them. By the early 1980s, the clinic had grown to more than 350 physicians, primary care neighborhood clinics were developed in New Orleans, and a multi-specialty practice was established in Baton Rouge. Suddenly patients might have their medical record broken into pieces — a different piece in each clinic where they were seen.

May be an EMR that looks very different from current paper or electronic systems.

E-mail Print PDF
EMR CLICKS“Clicking takes much longer than flipping.” And that is why electronic medical records should be redesigned to be more efficient. EMR systems do not take full advantage of the organizational functionalities, search proficiencies, or visual capabilities of computers. Doctors are comfortable with paper charts, because they can be reviewed so easily. Lab results, for instance, are often printed and clipped to a paper chart, so the physician can quickly review the results and look at the last note or compare them to old results by simply flipping through a few pages. “A lot of analysis and scanning is going on during this process, but it is all at virtual speed in the physician’s brain,”. The physician finishes the review by initialing the front page of the results, writing or stamping an interpretation on it, and putting it into an outbox for an assistant to complete and file.

EHRs and the Smaller-to-Medium Size Practice

E-mail Print PDF

EHRs WorkflowThe market is flooded with EHR products, but what physicians in small- and medium-sized offices are truly looking for is not just software that provides a charting solution, but a cost-effective product that manages their day. Physicians want a solution that automates their office while enabling consistent high quality care and increasing patient loads - but does not dramatically disrupt workflow. They are not interested in technology per-se, but a practical and affordable solution to everyday practice problems.  Fortunately, more EHR products today are being designed with these goals in mind and the smaller-to-medium sized practice, and more importantly, its patients all stand to benefit.
