EMRapproved is a comprehensive first-of-its-kind website designed to streamline access to all of the technology required to implement and maintain electronic medical records. You get computer hardware, software, companion services, medical devices and complete solutions all in one convenient location.

Patients as consumers of medical services can also maintain a personal health record or PHR, which in many cases can be integrated with the EMR information provided by their physician. The PHR is a tool designed to pull together all of a person's health-related information for easy immediate access and portability. EMRapproved also provides assistance and tools to help the patient create and maintain this popular new service.

Why is this site important?

The federal government estimates that it will deliver well over $25 million in incentive payments during the next 10 years to physicians nationwide.

The payments are meant to ensure the adoption of Electronic Health Records in the US. Although your family practitioner may still be using paper records, this new federal push toward EHR is rapidly changing the medical landscape. Physicians must meet federal requirements within the next 5 years or they will be paying significant penalties.

What does that mean for the patient?

It COULD save their lives. Relying on paper records, an emergency away from home could result in a fatality. If a clinic or hospital cannot connect with up-to-date information on a patient, decisions may be compromised or delayed. It also creates instant access to detailed information, reduces errors in billing, prescription interactions and ultimately, accurate diagnosis. That puts an end to unnecessary testing, speeds up diagnosis, saving money, precious time and lives. It also includes the patient in their personal medical records. Patients will be better informed and a more active participant in their own healthcare. Is your doctor ready?

What does it mean for the doctor?

Instant web-based access to current and complete information allows the physician to focus on immediate issues and treatment rather than waiting for records or administering unnecessary and sometimes painful tests. Physicians will be able focus on attentive and accurate patience care. Doctors will have the ability to instantly transmit test results, place prescription orders and communicate with their patients with ease and efficiency via secure web based portals. Saving both time, money and potentially... lives.
