What Documentation Obstacles Do Internal Medicine Doctors Face?
Ask any member of the American College of Physicians how the digitization of patients’ health records has impacted their professional duties, and you’re likely to hear a great deal about working late to keep up with all the documentation associated with maintaining EHRs. Along with the rest of the medical community, internists are tasked with constantly keeping their patients’ EHRs properly updated, stored and ready to be shared with other health professionals.
As a result, internal medicine doctors are faced with juggling their schedules to fit in large amounts of data entry. Otherwise, they risk exposing their practices to malpractice lawsuits, challenges to reimbursements and medical record audits. Plus, with the adoption of EHRs, internists must navigate a host of privacy and regulatory issues. Most notably, medical practices of all sizes must comply with HIPAA or run the risk of being hit with sizable fines.
If the right medical transcription services are chosen for internal medicine doctors, both time constraints and compliance issues can be addressed in a secure and cost-effective manner.
We can provide internal medicine transcription services for:
- annual physicals
- referral appointments
- follow-up appointments
- And more
Are Internal Medicine Transcription Services The Solution To Your Data Entry Burden?
In their ongoing efforts to maintain accurate and complete EHRs, internists face two clear obstacles. First, the data entry related to every patient’s visit is a labor-intensive task that eats into an internist’s schedule. This process limits the number of patients a doctor can see on any given day and often causes overwork. The result is increased levels of stress and a higher risk of burnout. This second obstacle can also impact internal medicine doctors’ ability to maintain clear and precise patient records.
On the other hand, the decision to hire ancillary personnel to perform internal medicine transcription services on site can be expensive. And along with an increased on-site workforce comes additional expenditures related to office expenses and equipment, which can considerably add to any practice’s operating costs.
