Dr. Geoffrey Leber and his staff are pleased to announce they are going paperless at their Scottsdale office in Arizona. The conversion to electronic medical records will benefit Dr. Leber’s patients in a number of ways, from making the first office visit more convenient to allowing Dr. Leber to focus even more on providing his patients with the highest quality of care. While moving from paper to electronic records is not an easy task, it is one that Dr. Leber will deliver long-lasting advantages for both his current and future patients.
What are Electronic Medical Records?
Electronic medical records, also referred to as EMRs, contain the same information found in a paper record, but in electronic format. Information will be specific to the physician’s practice and will include the patient’s medical history, past diagnoses and treatments and current medical conditions. The information in the EMR can be transferred to other providers as needed, like a paper file. However, an EMR may be sent more quickly and efficiently than faxing or hand-delivering a patient file.
What are the Advantages?
Dr. Leber moved to the EMR with his patients in mind. Patients will enjoy a number of benefits with the new EMR system, including:
- Improved diagnosis and treatment process
- Significantly fewer errors found in personal health records
- Files cannot be lost or misplaced
- Health information will always be up to date
- Providers can implement faster decision-making and patient care
- Sharing files with other providers becomes faster and more efficient
- New patient forms can be conveniently completed before the first visit
- Prescriptions can be sent electronically and instantly to any pharmacy
The primary advantage for patients will be Dr. Leber’s ability to spend less time with paperwork and more time with patients. As a popular Arizona cosmetic surgeon, this additional time with his patients will give Dr. Leber more time to explain procedures and help patients determine which cosmetic treatment will meet their needs best. Dr. Leber believes this will translate to a higher quality of care overall for every patient that visits his office.
