Your weekly dose of wisdom from the Physicians Practice experts.
With all the useful information available on Physicians Practice, it is easy to become overwhelmed.
With this in mind, the tip of the week is a chance to reflect on some of the wisdom found all across the site. In the September 2021 article on four ways an EHR can improve patient engagement, John Squire writes the following:
At its core, improving patient engagement is about involving the patient in their own care, and as a result, enhancing outcomes. If leveraged properly, EHRs can actually allow for more effective interactions with patients during visits.
1). Take advantage of your patient portal - A patient portal can be extremely beneficial to patients because it allows them to actively manage their care and can also help solve their common pain points.
2). Empower patients thru visual display data - One easy way to remove the barrier of the computer screen is by involving the patient through visual display of their data in the exam room. Visual integration connects patients with the process without them feeling overwhelmed.
