Patient Record Software

A fact that has stymied the patient record software industry for some time now has been the fact that smaller medical practices have been naturally reticent to installing the systems in their practices. Up until very recently, when the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009 (the Federal Stimulus Package) was passed by congress, the electronic patient record adoption process has been one typically embraced by practices (and hospitals) with over 50 doctors on staff.

Meanwhile, by far the largest group of doctors in the US, those practices with 1-3 doctors, have adopted patient record software systems at a rate of less than 10%. Added Medicare and Medicaid incentives have increased this adoption number markedly, of course, but this disparity amongst healthcare providers is particularly chilling.

As noted in a New York Times article, meanwhile, those doctors who have adopted patient record software have found increasingly satisfying results, with reports of better, faster patient care, and far less errors than with paper patient records.

Why Large Providers Have Moved First

It's a basic fact: large practices and healthcare providers have been early adopters of electronic patient record software. This comes for one basic reason: scalability. The larger the practice, the more daunting paperwork can become, and the more productivity it can sap from even the most efficient of organizations.

By centralizing data access with electronic patient record software, and using their size to adopt network-wide systems, the overall administration costs are lowered and return on investment quickened in a larger organization. Plus, with larger revenues overall, the installation costs can be absorbed easier than they can by a single doctor.

Stimulus - The Great Balancer?

Because the Federal Stimulus program seeks to reward new adopters of patient medical record software, single doctors can finally obtain all of the benefits of an electronic medical record software system without having to worry about absorbing the high cost of installation.

Adopting a patient medical record software system in your office, after all, is more than just a simple software installation. Instead, typical adoption involves software and hardware installation, combined with initial training and full support. These costs can build up fast, and the Stimulus package is intended to soften the blow of these costs for smaller practices.
