CLINICAL Abstraction

support your physicians, and help meet reporting requirements by moving discrete data such as medication lists, allergies, histories and more from legacy systems to your current EHR.

It is a question you will find your physicians and practice managers asking as you move forward in your new EHR implementation. High quality, objective chart abstraction ensures useful clinical data such as allergies, medical lists, and patient history migrate into your new system.

No one has the time to complete this tedious, click and thought-intensive, manual process, patient after patient, while maintaining the needed accuracy for excellent record keeping, OR they simply can’t afford the time to get to it.

Unfortunately, it’s not simply adding highly trained staff capable of extracting this key patient information, while in the midst of an EHR change or new implementation.

This means clinically pertinent patient information may not be accessible at the time it is most needed for clinical decision-making purposes.

“How do we collect all of the most important data from our charts and enter it into our new system?”
