IT has been called upon to help make a smoother transition to new care models, including Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)â€”and gloEMR will play an important role.
Currently, patient care is often disjointed. Many members of a patient care team don’t know what other members are doing. In some cases, a patient may have several doctors who are not communicatingâ€”but in other cases, the non-collaborating patient care team is wider, including family members, health-care providers, and payers.
According to one industry blog, The Healthcare IT Guy, electronic medical records (EMRs) can potentially play an important role in bridging this divide and coordinating and integrating activities. To do so, however, EMRs will need to open themselves up beyond legal boundaries (such as a single practices) and allow integration; theyâ€™ll need to be flexible; and theyâ€™ll need to model data to understand all of its uses. In addition, to be successful, any EMR will need to be usable.
This is where gloEMR excels. gloStreamâ€™s flagship product, gloEMR, is based on Microsoft technology, which is well know and easily shared, facilitating integration and flexibility. gloEMR also features a user-friendly dashboard that makes key functionality simple to even IT novices. If youâ€™re looking for an EMR that will keep up with the industryâ€”adapting to new care modelssuch as ACOsâ€”look no further than gloEMR.
