Benefits of HIE Consulting
The health sector has taken a long time to be able to advance when it comes to keeping of patients records and also when it comes to sharing of this same data but as a result of the health information exchange, patients are able to have their records to be electronically saved and for this reason physicians and doctors are able to access the patient’s data and be able to make the necessary updates electronically. In this talk, we are going to have an opportunity to discuss the various advantages of the health information exchange and how it is of benefit to both the patient and also the physician. The reason why it is important to use the health information exchange consulting is because we are able to reduce the numerous paperwork that used to be dealt with when it came to medical records and also the patients data is able to be accessed easily and also to be read in a very easy way because you don’t have to read the doctor’s handwriting which is normally very difficult to understand.
Using the health information exchange has become very important in many health facilities and this is because the doctors are able to access the full medical history of the patient and this makes it easier for them to be able to start treating the patient because they are able to understand their history. This strategy has become very beneficial to both the patient and the doctors in terms of saving time and this is because the process is digitised and only by a click the doctor is able to access the full data and information about that particular patient, therefore, they do not need to spend a lot of time when it comes to looking for the records of the patient.
The duplication of services that used to be done with the old system was quite expensive especially for the patient and as a result of the health information exchange consulting the doctor does not need to do previous texts that have already been done in different hospitals they just need to access that information and use it to be able to treat that specific patient, therefore, the patient does not need to go through duplication of tests. Another reason why it is important to apply this new strategy of health information exchange consulting is because when it comes to public health information sharing was quite a difficult process but as a result of this system it has become much easier and faster and also less expensive and we are also able to encourage green environment since no paperwork is used.
