What Documentation Obstacles Do Ophthalmologists Face?
In the field of ophthalmology — just like in the rest of the medical sector — there have been significant advancements in how patients’ medical records are updated, stored and shared. Hard copy records are no longer sufficient, as electronic health records — or EHRs — are now being used by the majority of healthcare professionals. As an unintended result, ophthalmologists are now required to keep up with an ongoing stream of data entry — or risk being targeted by malpractice lawsuits, audits and reimbursement challenges.
Yet with the advent of EHRs, there are also many privacy and regulatory issues. Ophthalmology practices of all sizes must comply with HIPAA or run the risk of incurring steep fines.
My doctors and I have been working with ZyDoc for over 10 years and we are happy with the service they provide. Anytime there have been technical issues, they are very responsive and quick to find resolution. Would highly recommend!
We have been using ZyDoc for years and the ease of the system is fantastic and all of our providers are very satisfied.
I just wanted you to know how pleased I am with the time accuracy ZyDoc provides. The patients and insurance companies are so pleased that they are getting their dictations within 24 hrs. after their scheduled appointments. Some are amazed! Also thank you for all your help and guidance when I need you!
Are Ophthalmology Transcription Services the Solution To Your Data Entry Burden?
When it comes to maintaining accurate and comprehensive EHR charts, ophthalmologists face two distinct obstacles.
Performing data entry in a timely manner after every patient visit is a time-consuming and labor-intensive endeavor. It eats into ophthalmologists’ days, limiting the number of patients they can see and often forcing them to work late into the evening. This process increases their stress and places them at risk of burnout.
Performing data entry in a timely manner after every patient visit is a time-consuming and labor-intensive endeavor.
Additionally, hiring a staff member to perform ophthalmology transcription services onsite is expensive. It increases the workforce and comes with additional costs — such as equipment and office expenses — that can significantly increase a practice’s monthly overhead.
