If you work in the medical field, you know how much information you collect and look at every day. Whether it's patient information, consent forms, lab results, prescriptions, or billing addresses, there is a lot of data to collect and store.
Until recently, this data was recorded by hand and stored on paper documents. With the adoption of Electronic Medical Records (EMR), those in the medical field are moving toward electronic collection and processing of data, slowly eliminating the use of paper forms. As with any change, this process has not been met with complete acceptance, as many have found the process to be cumbersome and time consuming, with some doctors citing an unwillingness to click through multiple screens while patients look at their backs.
Though the end result is desired by most, adoption of a completely integrated process has been met with resistance for a multitude of reasons. Unfamiliarity with technology has been a primary reason for low adoption, with a preference for writing taking a close second place. With Mi-Corporation’s paper-like mobile-forms and digital pen technology, professionals’ needs are met and the problems associated with basic digital forms technology are avoided entirely. Mi-Corporation’s integrated, mobile-enhanced solution allows physicians to interact face-to-face with patients from start to finish.
By creating a digital form that is very similar to those the physician is accustomed to, Mi-Corporation has seen much higher adoption rates than the industry as a whole. This familiarity allows the physician to feel comfortable with the technology, significantly reduces errors from improper manual data entry, and offers system integration including full patient history, allergies, and current medications. Additionally, the use of a digital pen gives physicians who prefer to write the option to do so. This technology bridges the gap between manual and digital with ease for seamless EMR adoption.
If your office is looking for a complete end-to-end mobile data collection solution, consider Mi-Forms by Mi-Co. Unlike most of its competitors, Mi-Forms does not rely on a specific type of hardware platform. Our software works with standard tablets, tablet PC's, digital pens, and other mobile devices and allows physicians to write, use voice recognition, touch, keyboarding, or whatever input is most comfortable to them.
