How Electronic Health Records Improve Your Practice

by | Jan 16, 2019 | Information Technology

Electronic health records, also known as EHR, are the most efficient way to keep track of your patients and your practice, improve accuracy and outcomes of patient care, and eliminate the need for paperwork. Making the switch over to behavioral health practice management software can benefit your office in many ways. Here’s a quick rundown of just a few ways that EHR can improve your practice.

Better Tracking

With EHR, you won’t have to worry about patients being “lost” without timely follow up and scheduling. You can easily keep track of a patient’s medication, visit history, and when they’re due for their next appointment. And with all of their personal information in one place, keeping in contact is made easy.

Office Management

Having all of your patients’ personal information in one place makes it easier for your office staff to focus on customer service and patient interaction rather than shuffling through files or searching for charts. Updating information is made simple, and appointments can be scheduled with ease without the risk of timing conflicts or overbooking.

Medication Management

Medication is a crucial part of behavioral health, and EHR can help you drastically lower the risk of errors and interactions. Additionally, prescriptions can be sent electronically to pharmacies and easily refilled through your EHR system, and you can easily consult your state’s Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, notes AZZLY.


Behavioral health practice management software also makes billing your patients easy, giving you more accuracy with coding, getting your patients the right reimbursements, and allowing you to run financial reports. And since EHR makes it easy to keep up-to-date personal information on your patients, you won’t have to worry about submitting erroneous claims and running into processing errors.

When you take all of the above into consideration, switching to EHR is the obvious choice for you and your patients.
