EMR for OB/GYN
Electronic Medical Records Software for Obstetricians/Gynecologists (OB/GYN)
Nightingale On Demand – A Complete EMR Solution
Nightingale On Demand, a fully integrated Web-based Electronic Medical Records solution, helps Obstetricians/Gynecologists operate more effectively, improve patient care and mitigate risk during pregnancies. With a high volume of patients, OB/GYNs use the lab interface to monitor test results, the automated prenatal and antenatal forms to reduce administrative work, and the scheduling function to streamline patient encounters. An integrated drug database ensures medication is safely prescribed, and on-demand access allows physicians to review and update charts from hospital, clinic or the road. The comprehensive EMR solution also provides patient registration, practice management and billing.
24/7 patient care
Obstetricians/Gynecologists face a high demand for their services. They are always on the go, whether seeing new patients, assessing lab results, or rushing to the clinic for an emergency delivery. Nightingale On Demand embraces the hectic OB/GYN schedule by giving anytime, anywhere access to patient records while on the go. Physicians can access the records from the hospital as well as the clinic with laptops, tablets and smartphones.
Prenatal and Antenatal forms
Obstetricians/Gynecologists face a wide variety of challenges. They manage patients of all ages, from puberty through menopause. They treat both acute and chronic gynecological conditions, and manage risk through pregnancy and childbirth. With their work, OB/GYNs spend a lot of time manually filling in prenatal and antenatal forms. Nightingale On Demand provides automated flow sheets, allowing physicians to use the same form for all visits until the 20-week point when paperwork must be signed and submitted electronically to the hospital.
With each prescription, Obstetricians/Gynecologists usually need to check the drugs’ interaction with allergies, food and other medications. The consequences of failure are grave, especially for pregnant women. For example, Aspirin, ibuprofen, and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) interfere with blood clotting and increase the risk of uncontrolled bleeding for both mother and child. Nightingale On Demand comes with the Cerner Multum drug database to automate interaction checking. The solution also assigns prescription numbers to aide with tracking prescriptions and help thwart drug abuse.
Obstetricians/Gynecologists perform a broad range of gynecological exams, as well as obstetrical work for pregnancy. For each assessment, physicians need to quickly look up the corresponding codes to bill for the encounter and develop the proper treatment plan for the patient. With an ever-growing database of assessment codes, however, finding the correct billing information is often time consuming. Worse, if the wrong code is submitted, reimbursements are delayed, hurting the practice’s cash flow. Nightingale On Demand provides all the necessary assessment codes OB/GYNs need to effectively treat and bill patients.
Manually checking lab results can be time consuming and invites unintended errors for Obstetricians/Gynecologists. Nightingale On Demand is connected to three major labs, CML, LifeLabs, and Gamma and automatically compares lab results against normal levels. Any result above normal is flagged and the OB/GYN immediately alerted. Nightingale On Demand also tracks and records ultrasounds and links images to the patients’ charts. Physicians create a prenatal flow sheet to keep track of fetal heart rate, weight gain, blood pressure and glucose levels to mitigate risk.
Quick consult letter
Obstetricians/Gynecologists often see patients for the entire term of the pregnancy, resulting in many interactions with patients and other specialists. In their gynecological work, there is a requirement to send back a consult letter to the referring physician as well. Developing professional, polished consult letters from scribbled, fragmented notes is quite time consuming. Still OB/GYNs 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 transcript and speech-recognition software. OB/GYNs can even sign and fax consult letters directly from the Web-based EMR solution.
Workflow for Obstetrician/Gynecologist practices
Nightingale On Demand includes dozens of predefined templates for Obstetricians/Gynecologists. For example, the ’Favourite Notes’ function allows OB/GYNs tohave pre-populated ‘macros’ which will save pre-created verbage that is used on a frequent basis. . The Profiles function allows one to set up a customized protocol (a specific assessment would automatically populate certain medications, diagnostic tests, consultations etc).
Recall and follow-up scheduling
Obstetricians/Gynecologists often schedule frequent follow-up visits with expectant women to monitor the health of the mother and baby. But with the high workload of many OB/GYN practices, keeping track of all the appointments can be time consuming for their front staff. Nightingale On Demand provides a scheduling reminder system which prompts OB/GYNs to contact patients before each scheduled appointment.
