PatientLink and Epson Provide Fast Solution to EHR Data Entry
How often have you found yourself completing a form before a medical appointment, only to be asked the same questions when you finally see the doctor? And how many times a day must a clinic’s intake professional have to manually enter data into a patient’s Electronic Health Record (EHR)? PatientLink’s patented method reduces the time it takes to enter patient data into a health organization’s EHR. PatientLink says it vastly improves workflows and allows healthcare providers more time for patient engagement. The company cites that the key to their success is a well-designed, customized “bubble” intake form like those used in standardized testing, together with reliable printers such as the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-C5790 multifunction printer and fast scanners such as the Epson DS-320 portable document scanner or the Epson DS-530 color desktop document scanner. According to David Lee, director of operations at PatientLink, the highly innovative system provides a fast, cost-effective way to enter data into an EHR.
