VAT Enabled EMR Software provides better access to laboratory data, duplication and costs are reduced. The results of the disease can be improved, as shown by a randomized clinical trial of practices that demonstrated a reduction in blood pressure in patients with hypertension who received screening tests and advice on excessive alcohol consumption, alcoholism or alcohol dependence through of an EMR intervention. Many resources and tools, such as drug interaction evaluations, calculators and body mass index calculators, can be quickly accessed to better inform physicians and their patients. These benefits are not lost on patients, since patients perceptions of the quality of care they receive have been positively associated with the use of EMR.
Structured VAT Enabled EMR software provides the potential to access point of care data that can be used to inform practice and conduct research. With meaningful use, including standard data input and consistent in specific fields, the EMR data provides the physician with valuable information at the practice level. This information can be used for practice-level interventions, such as identifying patients who have not received bowel cancer screening or mammography. The information provides feedback to primary care providers about the quality of their care, such as detection rates and achievement of preventive goals. EMR data at the point of care can be used to study problems in primary care, as evidenced by the work of the Network of Primary Care. Detailed analysis of EMR data on medications used in the primary care setting provides new information, such as signals of drug reuse, as demonstrated in a recent study that identified a decrease in mortality in patients with cancer.
VAT Enabled E-Clinic software improves communication and relationships between family doctors and their members of the multidisciplinary team. The summaries of the charts, medical notes and consultation letter templates provide consultants and several team members with legible and structured information. The recipes are in a clear and structured format, which reduces medical errors in the prescription.
