Direct care is growing in popularity, making tools likes Atlas EMR essential for practitioners. Independent physicians can now provide more engaging and satisfying care to patients who pay directly without depending on insurance companies.
Direct care is reminiscent of the days when the family doctor walked to patients’ homes and spent time consulting on the phone. As patients discover the benefits of this model, they are buying in to enjoy care that is faster and more affordable.
However, patients also expect to enjoy the benefits of an electronic medical records (EMR) system that the larger providers offer. So how can a family doctor or independent provider deliver the dividends of electronic health records without getting swamped in detailed data entry? The simple answer is: use an EMR designed for direct care.
Atlas.md is a groundbreaking electronic health record system designed for direct primary care and family doctors. It helps you to be HIPAA compliant and reduce practice overheads. But more importantly, it allows you to have more time to treat your patients and provide exceptional care.
Here are some of the benefits of using Atlas EMR to manage and improve your concierge or family medical practice.
- Availability on Multiple Platforms
The Atlas EMR has a responsive design. So, you can move from your office desktop to your mobile phone or tablet and still enjoy the same smooth and user-friendly interface.
The software is browser-based, so it works on almost all Internet enabled devices. Since it works on a cloud-based platform, you do not have to invest a lot of money to use it. There is no need to install servers or spend money on expensive IT equipment or personnel before you get started.
- Robust Documentation Features
When you use Atlas.md, you will enjoy its comprehensive patient charting features. The user interface is intuitive and designed to improve productivity.
For each patient, you can gain instant access to patient records including recent tests, diagnostic notes, allergies, prescriptions, appointments with specialists, and much more. Atlas.md makes it easy for you to see a detailed picture of your patient’s health within a few seconds.
- Enhanced Lab Interface
When you have to run lab tests on patients, you should choose wisely to get trustworthy results. Atlas EMR integrates with Quest Diagnostics, making it easy to order for tests, make payments, and sort out the mailing of samples from your office.
After the results of the test come in, Quest provides an extensive health library for analysis. You can use the comprehensive information provided on a wide variety of diseases and conditions to make a precise diagnosis.
- Improved Patient Communication
Patients deeply appreciate text messages from their physician. When you send messages to your patients, it shows that you care about them and you are a real friend. It makes them feel that they are always on your mind.
While sending a text message is wonderful thing to do, it can be difficult when you have many patients on your panel. The 2018 survey by the Physicians Foundation shows that a typical physician’s patient panel has 1,800 to 2,000 patients on it. Also, doctors see about 20 patients daily and work for over 50 hours a week.
However, with the SMS Dashboard Widget in Atlas.md, you can set up SMS messages and respond to them quickly. You can do this within the patient’s chart or dashboard without having to pick up your mobile phone.
SMS messages are great for reminders and follow up. But there are times when you need to have a live chat with more than one patient. Atlas.md makes this easy.
Use the social media synchronization feature to chat with patients in real-time. Give them the attention the crave for using this technology. After a chat, you can archive the conversation in your patients’ profiles. This gives you an opportunity to review them for more accurate recall.
