Three new video modules from the AMA show physicians how completing practice workflow analyses can increase quality of care and safety, mean more time spent with patients and possibly increase revenue.
The online tutorials, available for continuing medical education (CME) credit, provide information to physicians about the link between workflow redesign and the effective use of health information technology (IT). The short videos help physicians and practice staff in small practices make decisions regarding health IT.
The seven-minute-long videos cover:
The videos cover the benefits and processes involved in installing an ePrescribing system and how pre-visit planning can save time and money and help you improve the service you provide to your complex, high-utilization patients. They also show how point-of-care documentation yields time savings for physicians, patients and practice operations. Physicians and patients have more time to engage and document shared care plan decisions.
"Physician practices may need to redesign and reorganize their office routines so that they can successfully and efficiently adopt health IT," said AMA President Peter W. Carmel, MD. "The AMA created these tutorials to help physicians understand how to best implement new technologies, such as ePrescribing, into their practices."
The modules were created by the AMA and TransforMED, a nonprofit subsidiary of the American Academy of Family Physicians. These activities have been certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. View the tutorials.
