The piles of lab reports, messages, and medical records that sit on your desk will be replaced by electronic ‘tasks’ on your computer screen. For instance, a call to the doctor to review results will be replaced by a message and will be sent through the system. You will be able to access all of the patient’s surgical, clinical, and medical information at the push of a button. This will make communication more productive and improve efficiency. The entire workflow – from coordinating test results to prescription writing – will be more streamlined.
