Miracle EMR Potential Benefits:
Better Medical Practice:
Improves diagnosis and treatment. Significantly fewer errors occur within personal health data. Less treatment time and decision making responses from healthcare person.
Practices using Miracle EMR viewing capabilities, improve their chart availability, data organization, and legibility.As patient data accumulates over time, financial savings accrues from less staff time spent finding, pulling, and filing charts and less physician time spent locating information.
Documentation and care management:
We identified a consistent relationship between greater electronic documentation by physicians and greater quality improvement and financial benefits. In most practices the bulk of EMR-related financial benefits came from reductions in medical records and transcription staff as physicians moved from dictation to typing their own notes.
Miracle EMR electronic messaging usage among providers improves the availability, timeliness, and accuracy of messages and increased completeness of documentation, thus potentially reducing “dropped balls” and safety problems.
Analysis and reporting:
Practices use reporting capabilities more widely: For example, some practices generated reports to physicians on diabetic patients with hemoglobin A1C levels greater than 8 percent and on the percentage of a physician’s patients having such levels.
