Using EHR Software to Support Long-term Care

Despite the fact that electronic health records (EHRs) — also known as electronic medical records (EMRs) and personal health records (PHRs) — have been around for years, they’re still not instated by every long-term care facility. The reason for that? Paper charts have long been accepted as the default method for documenting patient information, which means many of those in long-term care facilities are missing out on access to an efficient, optimal software solution that provides them with a better way to work.

The Benefits of EHR Software for Long-term Care Facilities

If you’ve worked in the long-term care sector for any amount of time, then you know it’s “… a high-stress, low-margin business,” which is why “expediting workflow is critical to optimum patient care and cost-effective treatment” (Baird).

Our software solutions, like Collain Fusion, centralize all your data, offering the following benefits for your staff, your patients, and your organization:

Better Outcomes

An AI-driven approach to patient engagement delivers better outcomes.

Less Risk

Access to clear data lets you drive better outcomes, optimize revenue, and reduce costs of care.

Shared Data

Shared data points across organizational systems ensures safe and effective healthcare services. 

Consolidated Data

Data alignment and integration consolidates all associated patient data from various sources into one unified record.

Best Treatment

Real-time patient care history and status facilitates the best possible treatment plan for patients. 

Assessment Tools

Software solutions should make your life easier, not harder. So whether you’re dealing with the old pen-and-paper method or you’re working with a clunky EHR system that gives you more headaches than help, it’s time to look into a better way to work. Our software solutions are designed to give you everything you need for smoother day-to-day operations. 

If you’re tired of struggling with high staff, lost referrals, siloed software, or manual documentation, then it’s time to try something new. While the transition to a new EHR — or an EHR in general! — can be overwhelming and stressful, the end results are worth it. Once your EHR software is implemented, you’ll quickly see why so many long-term care facilities are turning to EHRs to better run their facilities.

Few healthcare facilities are organized and efficient enough to experience improved workflow for their staff, enhanced care for their patients, and boosted productivity that propels them toward success. Our EHR software for long-term care facilities includes interoperability that makes information exchange easier than ever by cutting down on duplicated documentation, offering a longitudinal view of patient health, and giving you access to more data that allows you to make faster, more informed decisions.
