The NP that I am with is very busy throughout the day and sees a large population of patients across the entire lifespan. He likes the ability to enter patient information quickly and efficiently to meet the needs required and to be sure to cross his T and dot his eyes. He can spend less time Infront of the computer with a few quick clicks and is able to modify his documentation by entering information into the comment or free text boxes. The program can lag sometime depending on the internet speed, but he feels the program meets the needs of the clinic and information needed to bill appropriately. Paper charting had its time in history for sure but moving all patient records to electronic charting allows more protection for patient privacy, information sharing between providers, order entry, prescriptions transcribing, and improvement of the clinician-client relationship. We moved to EHR to improve patient centered care, impr‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ove the healthcare process, and clinical outcomes (Evans, 2016). Meaningful use according to the Center for Disease (2020) allows for improved quality in patient care and safety, it allows for data retrieval for performance improvements. It also helps with improved billing and reimbursement means (Evans, 2018). EHR is being used on many platforms, depending on the company and their preference of collecting data, improvement, and quality (, 2021). EHR is becoming more common in primary care clinics, nursing homes, and outpatient radiological services. Centers for Medicaid and Medicare are the biggest drivers of the use of EHR documenting for reporting on patient and family engagement, patient safety, care coordination, population/public health, efficient use of healthcare resources, and clinical process/effectiveness (, 2021). CMS wants facilities to practice with the most updated evidence-based practices in medicine. This is especially important for any clinic, hospital etc that receive more than 10% of their reimbursement from Medicaid or Medicare populations‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍.
