With Electronic Medical Laboratory Management Software (EDX), even the most minor medical laboratory center provides massive operations that service hundreds, if not thousands of patients with individual charts, paperwork, and billing information.
This patient information can be complex for diagnostic centers to manage, mainly as it involves bringing together and collecting data from healthcare, patient, referring hospitals and departments (such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists, hospitals), and administrative departments (such as billing).
The traditional method processed this information using paper (either printouts or handwritten charts) and organized it manually. As you can imagine, this took a lot of time and effort, not to mention many administrative employees.
Luckily, technology has allowed the diagnostic center to organize their data electronically. It is fast, cost-effective, and precisely done with EDX over the traditional methods because this reduces human error and ensures a focused interface for each worker.
Electronic Laboratory Management Software (EDX) is computer software that manages all your diagnostic center’s information, from billing to medical procedures and reporting.
Defining Staff Requirements
EDX is perfect for making available what procedures your medical laboratory performs most often and equipping those departments appropriately so that your patient has quick, seamless, and easy access to your resources which in turn provides high customer feedback and Return on Investment (ROI).
Conversely, suppose your diagnostic center serves many pregnant women (or those in active labor). In that case, you should consider hiring more gynecologists or nurses specially trained to assist in birth and child emergencies. You can also analyze the times during the day when your hospital has the most patients (and in which departments).
EDX ensures that your emergency department doesn’t become overwhelmed or that your critical patients don’t have to wait for things such as CT scans, X-Rays, and MRIs.
Just like knowing the procedures you perform most often can help determine where to staff, knowing your patient’s demographics can help you expand and plan your diagnostic center effectively.
Demographics can be broken down by age, sex, or even race. From a physical expansion perspective, knowing the demographics of your patients can help you choose which buildings to expand.
Also, if you are building an office extension to your diagnostic center, knowing the most likely services your patients will need can help you court which physicians to rent your space to (and affiliate your center’s services with). Just as they can keep track of your standard procedures, EDX can keep track of your hospital’s demographic information.
Provide Researchers With Valuable Dataâ€‹
Everyone wants to make diagnostic better, and one of the best ways to do that is by giving researchers and medical boards access to your center’s reporting data. EDX allows patients’ records to determine the most performed procedure, and the board makes critical decisions.
EDX gives “hard evidence” of what is going on in the field rather than simply in testing labs and facilities; over time, this “hard evidence” can lead to procedural changes or different treatment options more likely to give the patient a better outcome. A diagnostic center’s administration system can monitor patient results and send data directly to researchers, eliminating the need for someone to go through the patient charts looking for results (which is also a HIPPA violation).
Reduces Duplication Errorsâ€‹
Traditional records kept with folders and paper are difficult to keep track of and tend to get lost or left in patient rooms.
These errors can lead to doctors not knowing what tests or medications have been administered. Worse, when a new doctor or nurse comes on shift, they may not have an accurate picture of what has been done. If the chart isn’t right in front of them, they may issue a new order based upon incomplete information.
EDX allows doctors and nurses instant access to patient records directly from a computer. These include access to previous orders and investigation reports, meaning there won’t be any duplication errors in patient records.
Eliminates Handwriting Errorsâ€‹
Everyone makes jokes about doctors’ handwriting, but the truth is that poor writing, doctor’s or not, can harm patients.
Since many conditions and medications are spelled similarly, poor handwriting on a doctor’s part can cause the wrong treatment or medication (or medication dosage) to be administered.
These can cause significant health problems and complications that can harm the patient and leave your doctors and diagnostic center liable.
Since EDX is computer-based, when a doctor enters an investigation report, they do so via keyboard-eliminating potentially harmful mistakes due to handwriting errors.
Lost Diagnostic Records
Whether it’s investigation records or billing records, your diagnostic center can’t afford to run out at the wrong time.
A health information system can keep track of all your diagnostic center billing and patient records.
