Government health care initiatives are driving the move from paper-based to an electronic medical records program (EMR) with the objective to improve the quality and safety of care. Medical records technology offers health care organizations many benefits over paper, including more accurate and comprehensive information – and lower costs.
HCS facilitates your transition from paper to electronic medical records technology with the HCS INTERACTANT EMR module. The module’s multiple clinical applications deliver a broad range of functionality that eases documentation burden, reduces medical errors, and promotes quality outcomes.
Better Information Leads to Improved Care, Better Decisions
An electronic medical records program allows you to maintain more accurate and comprehensive medical information – resulting in improved care and better, faster decisions. The automation of error-prone manual processes streamlines workflows, increases productivity, and saves time and money.
But INTERACTANT offers even more than that. As a clinical information system, INTERACTANT extends functionality and benefits beyond basic EMR – including computerized physician order entry (CPOE), online medication administration records, and pharmacy. These added benefits include:
- Better coordinated care across disciplines
- Verification of medications and dosages for accurate dispensing
- Automatic alerts for potentially dangerous drug interactions
- Real-time web and mobile access to medical information for authorized staff
Most importantly, because the INTERACTANT EMR module is made up of multiple, interoperable clinical applications, it’s easy to select only the functionality you require – customizing your solution by choosing those applications that provide the capabilities that fit your facility’s specific needs.
INTERACTANT supports the specific clinical requirements of facilities across the spectrum of care, including:
- Long Term Care
