Why We Need HIE Consulting
The health sector has taken a long time to be able to advance when it comes to keeping of patients records and also when it comes to sharing of this same data but as a result of the health information exchange, patients are able to have their records to be electronically saved and for this reason physicians and doctors are able to access the patient’s data and be able to make the necessary updates electronically. In this chapter, we are going to talk about the various ways in which both the patient and the doctor are able to benefit from the health information exchange. One of the reasons why we require health information exchange consulting is definitely to be able to reduce the paperwork that used to be handled in terms of medical records and also to be able to ensure that the patient’s data and information is easy to read as opposed to trying to get the patient’s information from the doctor’s handwriting.
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. The use of the health information exchange consulting has made to the process of accessing the patient’s information to be very easy to access and this is because the system is digitised and therefore the patient’s information is just a few clicks away and this has been able to ensure that you save time for both the patient and the doctor.
This method of health information exchange has become quite beneficial to many health facilities and this is because they are able to save on numerous resources because they are able to avoid duplication of services meaning that when a patient has test results from a specific hospital when they visit a different hospital the doctor does not need to do the same tests again since the information about the test is on the system and the doctor just needs to access the information and be able to treat the patient. Another reason why it is important to apply this new strategy of health information exchange consulting is because when it comes to public health information sharing was quite a difficult process but as a result of this system it has become much easier and faster and also less expensive and we are also able to encourage green environment since no paperwork is used.
