EMRs and Dictation....A Winning Combination

Make the most of your EMR while making the most of your physicians' time. 

Studies show that it takes a physician an average of 4.5 minutes per patient to document a visit using templates in an EMR system. By contrast, dictation takes only 1.5 minutes per patient. The result? Doctors will either see fewer patients or work longer hours. Transcription costs may be lower, but so is productivity, resulting in thousands of dollars in lost revenue. Consider that the calculated hourly wage for physicians and their medical assistants is significantly higher than that of transcriptionists. In addition, doesn’t high quality patient care mean physicians who focus on their patients instead of their computer screen?
