Podiatry EMR Software
Podiatry EMR software is designed to make running your practice easier and more efficient through the help of specialty-specific forms, templates, terminology, and codes. Implementing EMR software in your practice will reduce data entry and improve workflow, as you will be able to find patient information in one centralized location. In addition, by moving away from paper charts, you can schedule appointments more efficiently, send prescriptions electronically, and spend more time with patients and less time filling out paperwork.
Are you a podiatrist looking for a quality electronic medical record (EMR) product designed specifically for your specialty? Take a look at Health Technology Review's EMR software reviews section to see a list of podiatry EMR software vendors.
Specialty-specific forms, documents, and customized letters help make charting easier and allow doctors to focus on patient care. A podiatry-specific EMR system will include a history of present illness, a review of systems, and custom specialty-related templates. These are some of the more common templates:
- Achilles Tendonititis
- Achilles Tendon Rupture
- Ankle Sprain
- Arthritis of the Foot/Ankle
- Bone Spur Heel
- Cellulitis Foot/Ankle
- Chronic Lateral Ankle Pain
- Contusion of the Foot/Heel/Toe
- Corns and Callosities
- Diabetic Neuropathy
- Heel Pain
- Ingrown Nail
- Join Pain
- Plantar Warts
- PT Tendon Dysfunction
- Stasis Dermatitis
- Stress Fracture of the Foot/Ankle
- Tinea Pedis
- Toe Deformity
- Toenail Fungus
- Verruca Plantaris
Since podiatrists are eligible for ARRA incentives and many choose to participate in the Meaningful Use program, it is important to have tools to help providers track their reporting progress. Because of this, many EMRs include a Meaningful Use Reporting Dashboard. By using this tool, providers are able to view percentages of compliancy, as well as which patients they have achieved meaningful use with and which ones they have not.
