What Are Ambulatory EHR Systems?

Glossary

Ambulatory EHR systems are becoming more popular as the technology continues to develop in the healthcare industry. Already 90% of hospitals use ambulatory electronic health records to improve the quality of care while supporting the performance and efficiencies of their staff as it relates to patient care and risk assessments. It also helps ambulatory practices to stay compliant with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regulatory programs

Since most patients (92%) don’t require hospitalization, it makes more sense to focus on ambulatory care in a streamlined way that will enhance and streamline the patient-provider relationship. That’s why TempDev focuses on your workflow optimization while offering training and support to help you better capitalize on EHR features and functionality.  

How Do Ambulatory EHR Systems Improve Patient Care? 

Ambulatory electronic healthcare systems (EHRs) are digital patient chart systems that allow for physicians to document patient care in them. The systems are based upon longitudinal patient care, including chronic care management. They may have hospital data in them, however, most of the data is from physician visits in their office or surgical center. Ambulatory EHR Systems focus on diagnosing, offering specialty referrals, writing prescriptions, and capturing interactions with patients.  

Ambulatory EHRs focus on patient care outside of hospitals including at outpatient clinics, specialty practices, and primary care practices. With features like easy-to-use Patient Portals, patients can more easily access their data, request refills, and pay bills online. TempDev’s team of NextGen experts can help you customize your system for ambulatory surgical centers, specialty centers, FQHC, Medicare Advantage, and Planned Parenthood clinics.  

How are Ambulatory EHR Systems Implemented?  

An ambulatory EHR system makes it faster and easier for you to process a patient for a medical appointment or emergency care situation. Since the files are more versatile, virtually any member of your staff or healthcare team can read and assess a patient’s medical records with the appropriate permissions. TempDev can help you implement NextGen EHR, which is recognized as a popular and effective ambulatory EHR system. 

With the ease of use and the level of portability, patients are more likely to share their EHRs with pharmacies, laboratories, imaging centers, medical facilities, and healthcare providers. So, it saves you time and money, while streamlining the entire process of sharing EHRs, even as it relates to patient care and medical billing.
