It’s no secret that health care providers are overburdened with administrative tasks, leaving them with less time to actually spend with patients. A new study published in JAMIA underscores the impact of stress brought on by ineffective EHRs: Physicians with an increase in perceived EHR stress had 1.15 times greater odds of burnout.
However, an EHR system designed to help health care professionals work smarter, not harder can do more than just manage patient data – it can provide invaluable support to those who prefer to treat patients than tend to paperwork.
Enter our Axiom software, which offers providers a user-friendly experience and advanced technology to help reduce the need for data input and ultimately alleviate at least some of the factors that cause burnout.
User-friendly EHRs and the Power of Two
First and foremost, we designed Axiom with the user experience in mind. While transitioning to a new EHR can be complex, when the system is easy to use, employees can quickly turn to patient care. There’s no need to spend days or weeks learning a new system.
Data entry is inherent in the medical field: Documentation is a critical component to ensuring effective continuity of care and that providers get paid for their services. Unfortunately, administrative tasks often take so much effort that they cut into the time that overworked health care professionals have to treat their patients.
The Axiom user interface ensures that our customers can access any screen in two clicks or less, alleviating the cumbersome process of navigating through endless screens to find the information needed to enter new information about a patient or reference historical data. The system enables users to easily customize the interface and build forms to meet the needs of their own practice.
Customizing an EHR helps health care providers access exactly what they need when they need it, substantially increasing productivity and adding precious time to a busy day.
Advanced Technology is the Key to Efficiency
Incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) into the EHR system is yet another way that users can gain drastic productivity improvements. For example, a provider at the University of Michigan Health-West estimated that AI helped reduce the time spent with patients typing and clicking from 75 percent to 25 percent. Think about what you could do with all of that extra time!
This is one of the reasons why we incorporated AI into Axiom. Our solution listens to a patient-provider conversation, selects the important information that pertains to the discussion, and puts the information where it needs to go to in the clinical record. Voice recognition for health care professionals also enables some of the human-powered solutions that require administrative time throughout the day. What’s more, the system learns and adapts along the way.
This is how our AI-powered Axiom EHR solution alleviates some of the tasks that burn health professionals out.
Health care professionals are in the business of helping people. Similarly, we’re in the business of making it easier for health care professionals to do their jobs.
