A Health Information Network will help you :
With faster access to information, you will have patient information compiled from across systems when you need it. This means less time searching, faxing and calling other providers for information and fewer duplicate tests.
With accurate and standardized transmission of information, you will get results and reports in a consistent format. This means less chance for error and fewer delays for treatment.
With automated and streamlined information exchange, there is less chance for mistakes and a more efficient use of your practice's resources. This reduces expenses related to unnecessary medications, tests, and hospitalizations.
With secure information systems, there's controlled access to patient health information and less paper. This means more privacy for patients.
