How Can Hospitals Boost Physician Productivity?

Hospitals are by far one of the busiest kinds of healthcare institutions. From emergency rooms to operating rooms, doctors, nurses and physician assistants are expected to provide excellent care around-the-clock and keep up with creating all of the documentation associated with maintaining patients’ health records.

For many years now, there’s been a move toward increasing digitization of patients’ health records. Electronic health records — or EHRs — are intended to be easier to share with multiple care providers when necessary. However, this move has also unintentionally created an ongoing need for doctors to do massive amounts of data entry. If they fall behind, they leave themselves and the hospital vulnerable to increased risks of reimbursement challenges, medical audits and even malpractice lawsuits. Everyone knows that high quality medical records equate to better care and outcomes and fewer patient complications.

Failure to update patients’ EHRs and keep them confidential can result in the hospital being penalized. As a result, a growing number of healthcare organizations are turning to secure, U.S. based medical transcription services.  

Furthermore, accurate and secure record-keeping now forms a major part of the compliance standards under quality measures and HIPAA regulations. Failure to update patients’ EHRs and keep them confidential can result in the hospital being penalized. As a result, a growing number of healthcare organizations are turning to secure U.S. based, background-checked, medical transcription services.  Fast turnaround time for transcription can also help prevent an extra day’s stay with a timely discharge summary.

Are Medical Transcription Services the Solution To Physician Burnout At Hospitals?

Hospitals face two distinct challenges related to the comprehensive and ongoing maintenance of EHRs.

Whether doctors type and click their documentation in the EHR right after seeing patients — or later that same day — it’s a labor-intensive and time-consuming process. By doing their own manual data entry, doctors limit the number of patients they can see and often wind up working later than usual on this task. The notes are often sparse and do not convey the rich patient health story. The end result is that doctors who do their own EHR charting often report higher levels of work-related stress and burnout.

Doctors who do their own EHR charting often report higher levels of work-related stress and burnout.

Moreover, even when hospitals hire ancillary staff such as scribes to provide on-site transcription services, the solution can prove financially undesirable and scribes have to be hired, trained, managed and then given data requiring review or they may produce substandard results.  Moreover, speech recognition requires upfront licensing, IT installation and support, and hours of physician training. Speech recognition also takes longer than just dictating a record since it requires navigation through each section of the EHR and a 7% error rate on average according to a Harvard study.  In most instances, twenty-five percent of physicians won’t even try it when it is offered and it is no wonder since it generally increases the cognitive burden of the physician.

Let ZyDoc’s Fast, Accurate and Reliable Medical Transcription Services Benefit You

Because of the data entry burden that accurate, timely record-keeping places on doctors, numerous healthcare organizations are taking advantage of leveraging hospital transcription services with automated section level EHR insertion. This option lightens doctors’ workloads while simultaneously allowing them to do what they’re best at — treating patients.  It is much easier and faster for the doctors to dictate their encounters, have them transcribed and then inserted into the EHR. The resultant records are enriched human readable medical records that contain much better information. Doctors are freed to spend more time with patients, finish earlier or see more patients.
