Paper has been the traditional mean for storing patients medical records, Paper is easy to use and has a low cost of implementation.
However, paper does not hold up well over time, making information retrieval difficult. Archives also requires storage infrastructure that can be costly.
Migrate from paper to electronic management is the logical next step!
EMR can be managed on several technologies : from simple text editors to Web based software. Each of these strategies has advantages and disadvantages.
Programs like Microsoft Word are easy to learn and easy to obtain. The problem with these approach is that these software do not provide adequate search tools and also lacks adequate methods for file management. As the number of patients increase, file managment becomes more difficult . Clear EMR is a software that includes strong mechanisms for searching and finding your patients related information.
Local database programs come with strong searching capabilities, however generally do not offer adequate data migration tools when the medical information needs to be moved from one machine to another. Nor systems offer “backups” easy to implement. If a computer virus threatens the physician, the information could get into the wrong hands.
Clear EMR is different in that it provides continuous data backup “on the cloud”. Also, EMR Clear protects information using powerful encryption algorithms before synchronizing. When the doctor decides to change teams, the doctor just install Clear EMR on the new machine, put your credentials and Clear EMR it reconstructs all the information automatically. This synchronization method also allows the doctor to have their data on different machines simultaneously.
In recent years, there have been internet based programs for handling medical records. These programs have the advantage in the sense that the information is accessible from any computer (your doctor may change teams and provided access to information), however these systems have several disadvantages:
With Clear EMR, the informatio ALSO is available from any computer (thanks to the synchronization of data) but the information is stored locally. This allows working without internet connection. It also ensures access to it even if, for some reason, you cancel the subscription.
