EMR for Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists
Electronic Medical Records Software for Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists
Nightingale On Demand – A Complete EMR Solution
Nightingale On Demand, a fully-integrated Web-based Electronic Medical Records solution, helps Ear, Nose and Throat specialists save time and improve patient care. With Nightingale On Demand, ENTs can quickly and easily chart routine patient encounters. But since patient visits seldom conform to standard templates, ENTs can customize workflows to fit anything from PE tube checks to wax removal. Consult and referral letters are created in seconds with integrated transcription and speech-recognition software, and patient interaction is enhanced through an online portal. Nightingale On Demand is easy to set up, learn and use.
Ear, Nose and Throat physicians encounter many similar cases. Yet ENTs often create documents from scratch for each case, which wastes time and lowers productivity – without improving patient care. Nightingale On Demand streamlines case management by using template-driven workflow, which ENTs can use to address both routine and complex procedures. Quickly accessing the relevant template frees up time for ENTs to treat more patients.
Conducting hearing tests is a commonplace in an ENT practice. Manually filing paper-based summary reports after each test, however, takes up a lot of storage space and is difficult to find later. Nightingale On Demand allows ENTs to attach PDFs from hearing tests into the patient chart for quick and easy access. In that way, no paper work is generated, making Nightingale On Demand both a space-savingand cost-effective solution.
Sleep apnea and snoring
Ear, Nose and Throat physicians see many patients with sleep apnea and snoring issues, a common problem that often leads to strife with spouses and loved ones. The problems are typically caused by incompletely formed palate or deviated septum. Because of the high frequency, it doesn’t make sense to treat each case as unique. Still, many ENTs write or dictate individual consult letters to referring physicians. Nightingale On Demand uses integrated transcription and speech-recognition software for ENTs to produce consult letters in less than a minute.
With each prescription, Ear, Nose and Throat physicians usually need to check the medication's interaction with allergies, food and other medications. The consequences of failure are grave. Nightingale On Demand comes with the Cerner Multum drug database to automate interaction checking online. The solution also assigns prescription numbers to aide with tracking prescriptions and help thwart drug abuse.
Surgeon referral letters
Some otolaryngological cases, such as sinusitis, tonsillitis and adenoid surgery, require referral letters to specialty surgeons. Crafting each referral letter by hand can be a painstaking process for Ear, Nose and Throat physicians. Nightingale On Demand makes the process easy by providing templates to capture all the relevant information online. With integrated transcription and speech-recognition, ENTs can dictate the information directly into the patient record.
Quick consult letters
Developing professional, polished consult letters from scribbled, fragmented notes is quite time consuming. Still Ear, Nose and Throat physicians rely on consult letters to represent themselves to referring physicians, expand their brand and grow their practice. Nightingale On Demand simplifies the consult letter process by capturing text through integrated transcription and speech-recognition software. ENTs can even sign and fax consult letters directly from the Web-based EMR solution.
New techniques and procedures
Ear, Nose and Throat physicians are always on the lookout for new techniques to increase their effectiveness and improve patient care. For example, recent years have seen significant progress in tonsillectomy and ear tube insertion procedures. To benefit from these advances, ENTs attend conferences, study medical journals and engage in other continuous learning activities. But many ENTs struggle with where to keep the research information. Nightingale On Demand gives ENTs an online repository to store treatment guidelines and other vital data, which can be accessed with a click of the mouse.
To aid patients in the preparation and recovery from critical procedures, Ear, Nose and Throat physicians provide pre-operation and post-operation information. Many ENTs want to discuss the information with patients ahead of time to manage their expectations. It can be difficult, however, to quickly find the relevant information. Nightingale On Demand includes a knowledge base to store instruction sheets and brochures for patients, making it easy to discuss the procedures with them during visits.
Clinic brand promotion
Ear, Nose and Throat physicians understand the importance of promoting and protecting their brand when corresponding with other healthcare providers. Nightingale On Demand lets ENTs customize their consult letters with the clinic’s logo. In addition, many ENTs are choosing to run Web sites for their clinics. Nightingale On Demand supports that too, permitting patients to upload intake forms from home, which saves time for everyone involved. ENTs can also set up the Nightingale Patient Portal to improve communications with patients.
