Ways Technology Helps Medical Clinics


Ways Technology helps Medical Clinics

In today's world, technology has become a part and parcel of everyday life and it is only natural that medical practices are also adopting new technologies to help enhance patient care and enhance the efficiency of the practice. One such technology is the Electronic Health Record (EHR), which is rapidly gaining popularity in the medical field because of its ability to streamline the workflow of the medical clinic. By streamlining the workflow, EHR prevents redundant or duplicate data entry thus reducing errors and increasing the quality of the final report. In addition, EHR has the ability to link patient records and electronic health records thereby eliminating patient confusion as well as mistakes.

However, without an integrated electronic health record or EHR, it can be difficult for clinic management to ensure the security and compliance of patient records and information. By implementing EHR software, all of a clinic's records can be managed using one set of computer code. This simplifies matters as well because the system automatically updates the patient record when changes are made in the system. Also, EHR systems usually contain features that allow physicians and other staff members to access patient information and other related electronic health information at the touch of a button. In fact, certain models are equipped with digital voice boards that allow callers to speak to clinic management through a computer intercom system. Digital voice boards can also be used to display phone numbers of patients and other information pertinent to their care in the office.

Another way medical technology medical practices is through pharmacogenetics or genomics. This technology allows patients to utilize their own genetic material to avoid certain diseases or conditions from developing in them. This technology was initially developed in Japan but has since been adapted by the pharmaceutical companies to manufacture tablet forms of DNA-targeting drugs like Remicade and Abreva. The Japanese developed this technology by studying the effects of ultraviolet light on Japanese sperm. After several years, the Genomics Institute of Japan was launched and continues to research and develop new ways to apply this technology in clinical practice.

Another way technology helps medical clinics is through hospital e-commerce solutions. Clinic managers can use websites to display information about the clinic, its services and its most popular services. For instance, a website for a general dentist clinic contains many pages where a patient can find information about procedures, emergency contacts, types of dental products available at the clinic, and other pertinent information. Through an electronic database, a clinic manager can create and maintain a database that contains all the patient's data about his or her visits, and also allows the clinic's clients to easily order dental products over the Internet.

Technology can also be applied to information systems. Electronic patient records (EPRS) have revolutionized the way dental offices handle their patient records. Now, a clinic can use a system that collects and stores patient information in a secure and efficient manner. These systems store information about a patient's demographics, personal health information, treatments, medications, appointments, lab and radiology data, case histories and vital sign information.

The success of a modern medical practice hinges on how well staff members communicate with each other, access information quickly, and collaborate efficiently. Medical clinics can benefit from improved communication, collaboration, workflow improvement, and increased productivity through the use of innovative technology. Patients, too, derive much benefit from improved medical practices. By using modern technology, clinics can help patients live healthier and more productive lives.


Medical Hosing has also come a long way. Hosting patient medical records and data in cloud comes with its advantages. Healthcare data can now be accessed from anywhere by healthcare providers. Virtual private servers have been made HIPAA compliant to ensure the security of private patient medical records. They include powerful firewalls and DDOS protection along with SSL (Secure sockets layer)

Even domain names have been designed for the healthcare industry. With over 200 new domain name extentions that can be registered so many of these can actually be specifically for the health care industry.
Here is an example of the domain extentions that can be used for online healthcare websites.

With medical media on the rise and more healthcare clinics adopting to use social media for public information sharing we are seeing practices moving to online platforms and utilising technology to share and advertise information.

Since the rise of covid-19 telehealth is being used by the older generation who are often to unwell to travel long distances to see a doctor especially if the live in remote locations such as the Australian outback. This is where medical technology has helped improved the quality of health for some many people around the world.
