What’s the Best Pain Management EHR in the Market?

Friday, March 25th, 2022

Chronic pain and pain management are common concerns for most Americans. According to a study, 20% of adult adults suffer from pain worldwide, and 10% are newly diagnosed with chronic pain every year. That’s why your clinic must properly handle pain, regardless of how simple or how complex it is. 

If your patients suffer from either neck pain, back pain, or even chronic pain, make sure they have access to the best Pain Management EHR.

Before we go any further, let’s have a quick look first at why medical providers need EHRs.

Pain Management EHR Software

To provide comprehensive, timely health management, Electronic Health Records, also known as EHRs, are an essential component to running an effective pain management practice. The federal government mandates that health institutions use and share data among or within themselves. Most EHR systems require radical changes in clinical notes and can be customized to reflect current hospital records.

Moreover, an EHR streamlines the clinician’s workflow by automating access to information.  Through various interfaces, the EHR can also support other forms of care-related activity, such as evidence-based decision support, quality management, and outcomes reporting.

With timely, accessible data, providers make better decisions and provide better care. Hence, the advent of EHRs is a step towards more effective communication between patients and their clinicians. 

What is EHR for pain specialists?

It is fundamental for pain management specialists to make sure the patients are getting safe, accurate, and quality care. Nonetheless, without the proper tools and resources, specialists are at greater risk for substance abuse and other dangers. That’s why they must have a quality EHR to assist them in their important and difficult tasks. 

Pain Management Specialists Should Consider the Features of the Best Pain Management EHR

  • Patient Scheduling 

Pain management EHRs should provide a simple view of patient data and visit history and an attractive, user-friendly interface with numerous features and the ability to make predefined requirements. You can gain insight into your patient before they visit with patient scheduling tools in your pain management EHR, while the patient also gains access to essential reminders that keep them on track.  

  • Easy-to-use

Many pain providers have difficulty finding information, ordering labs, analyzing results, or graphing patient vitals on multiple screens in the practice technology. An EHR for pain management should allow a physician to do each of these things on one screen. All patient vitals, labs orders, and more should be available in one place for providers.

  • Patient Portal

Even though patient portals have been around for a while, you should have one in your EHR for pain management. A quality patient portal allows patients to access their personal health information (PHI) anywhere and anytime. Additionally, patients will be able to make payments, schedule appointments, and fill out their intakes online.

  • Customized Templates

Pain management EHRs must have customizable templates. They are essential because they allow PM specialists to tailor their documenting process to specific workflows or patients. If a template cannot accommodate this flexibility, patient data integrity is compromised. Therefore, a treating physician must be able to chart and record every detail in a way that protects data integrity and provides information for future decisions.

 

So, what is the best Pain Management EHR System in the market?

Three Benefits to Using Ambulatory Surgery Center-Pain Management EHR Software

Monday, November 11th, 2013

Choosing an EHR can be complicated for any physician, but it is even more difficult for specialty clinics as most systems are geared towards primary care. Pain management practices, after all, more so than many other specialties, require EHRs geared specifically to their needs. This is due to the fact that pain specialists see patients at multiple locations and have unique workflows that can’t be easily accommodated with standard systems.

Is your practice shopping around for its first EHR or for a replacement to an under-performing system? Here are three reasons why you should consider an Ambulatory Surgery Center EHR for pain management:

1. Pain Management EHRs are designed specifically for your specialty.

At 1st Providers Choice, we aim to make physicians’ jobs easier while improving patient care. This is why we have developed EHR software with pain management specialists in mind. Not only is our EHR ready to use right out of the box – it also features templates, forms and other tools that physicians in this field rely on most. Our EHR can also be customized to match your practice’s workflow and each physician’s needs, ensuring productivity isn’t affected and that different charting styles can be accommodated.

2. They allow for easy, automated sharing of patient records.

Our Pain Management EHR’s Intelligent Exchanger utility tool allows physicians to easily pull information from one EHR database to another. This is useful for specialists who might see patients both at their practice and at an ambulatory surgery center for further treatment, as it allows them to share data between systems without a hassle. How does it work? Upon visit note sign off, you can check if your patient is part of the surgery center you typically work with. If so, you can send the visit note to the surgery center to be filed in the patient’s chart as a visit note from a referring doctor. When you’re at the surgery center with the patient, you and the staff there will be able to access those files.

3. Access to pain management EHR records is possible at any time, from anywhere.

Many EHR systems for pain management specialists allow for easy access from Internet-enabled devices – and this is certainly the case with 1st Providers Choice. Our mobile-ready, cloud-based EHR allows physicians to access their patient charts securely no matter where they are, as long as they have access to a device with an Internet connection. This is an important feature seeing as pain management specialists must often travel between their practice, ambulatory surgery centers and local hospitals to treat patients.
