The importance of having 24/7 customer support for your independent practice EHR
Customer service is key for any business with any type of customer. As an independent physician, you are focused on providing the highest quality service, in the form of healthcare, to your customers – your patients. When you are depending on your electronic health record (EHR) for your independent practice, you also need to know you have 24/7 customer support available to you, so you can continue providing that quality care to your patients.
Why do you need that type of customer support for your independent practice EHR? You’ve implemented an EHR solution for various reasons, including:
- Patient data management
- Population health management
- Patient communication
- Patient access to health records
- Coordination and collaboration with specialty providers
Overall, your independent practice EHR is a major means of delivering high-value care. Electronic records give you access to your patient’s medical history, visit notes, lab results, and medications. Your patient uses the EHR solution to ask you questions and clarify follow-up instructions, often after hours, and to view their own healthcare information.
Maintaining accurate data, ensuring accessibility, and supporting the interoperability functions of the EHR are working properly and consistently is vital for you and your patients. Your mission as an independent provider is to care for your patients and that requires ensuring that you have access to effective and efficient medical data at all times.
Your EHR is not just something you input visit notes into during the visit. It operates 24/7 for you and your patients and you need to be sure you have 24/7 customer support so that there are no interruptions, missing or compromised information, or issues with accessing medical records. You need consistent, complete, and accurate information to provide the quality healthcare services your patients need and deserve.
