Electronic Medical Records (EMR) Interface Integration

EMR integration can improve patient care and operational efficiency.

In recent years, there has been increasing pressure for organizations to purchase and implement electronic medical record (EMR) systems to drive improvements in patient care safety, treatment outcomes, and overall operational efficiency.

The Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs provide incentive payments to eligible professionals, eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals as they adopt, implement, upgrade or demonstrate meaningful use of certified EHR technology. Electronically interfacing with Invision Sally Jobe will help you to meet and exceed these requirements.

EMR Interface Benefits

Following are some of the benefits of an EMR interface:

  • Delivers instant access to real time Invision Sally Jobe imaging reports and results.
  • Other than the price of software and implementation, there is NO charge per order sent/received.
  • Replaces faxed or mailed reports with secure electronic transfers of patient sensitive data.
  • Imaging results are submitted electronically and automatically entered into the patient's chart, even when the physician's office may be closed.
  • Improves response time and quality of care for patients.
