What Documentation Obstacles Do Orthopedists Face?
Just like in the rest of the healthcare sector, there have been significant advancements in the orthopedic field regarding how patients’ medical records are managed. Electronic health records — or EHRs — are now being used by the majority of doctors as an alternative to storing hard copy files.
However, the ongoing digitization of health records means that orthopedic doctors now have to keep up with a daily stream of data entry. If they don’t, their EHR charts could be inaccurate, which can result in failed treatments, malpractice lawsuits, reimbursement challenges and medical audits. Moreover, with the increased adoption of EHRs, orthopedic practices are required to be HIPAA-compliant. If they aren’t, they can incur significant penalties.

Are Orthopedic Transcription Services the Solution To Your Data Entry Burden?
Orthopedic doctors face two primary obstacles in maintaining accurate and comprehensive EHR charts. First, if they opt to perform the data entry themselves after every patient visit, they face a labor-intensive and time-consuming task that eats into their day. As a result, the number of patients they can see becomes limited. What’s more: They often have to work late into the evening to complete their patient notes. This process results in increased stress and risking physician burnout.
Second, if they hire a new employee to perform on-site orthopedic transcription services, they face higher costs in terms of payroll, equipment and office space. Especially for smaller practices, these additional costs might be too high to be practical.
