When it comes to healthcare IT, the EMR is the foundation for building successful technology into your organization. Like a great foundation, it should be stable and easy to build on. Your EMR has (likely) hundreds of companies, like QueueDr, that integrate directly into their platform to make it easy for you to roll out ancillary technology and improve the way you service your patients, manage paperwork, process payments etc (the list is seriously long). So here is our list of the top five reasons integrating technology with your EMR can make healthcare IT better.
5. Best in breed
Your EMR may be great but they cannot be the best at everything, so they have partnered with other companies to offer best in breed solutions.
You have options to choose from multiple organizations offering similar solutions to find the right product for you. Keep in mind this works in the inverse too, if your EMR is no longer working well for you – most of those vendors have other EMRs they integrate with so keeping the ancillary products and changing EMRs is a simple switch.
Strong bi-directional integrations allow for near real-time data processing making the integration seamless for your staff and patients. No more uploading CSVs and managing multiple systems with time delays.
You know the solutions you are selecting have been carefully vetted by your EMR, no EMR is going to share data with a partner that doesn’t meet the strictest security standards, designed to protect both you and your patients.
I know this word gets thrown around a lot in healthcare and it means something different to every vendor but without the bi-directional integrations, all these solutions would just be more work for your staff (and sometimes patients).
Here at QueueDr we are thrilled to add Epic to our list of integrated solutions. Read the full press release here.
