Data Integration is critical in minimizing duplicate data entry, office personnel time and expense. Duplicate data entry also results in the risk of errors in data entry with mismatch.
The best systems are those which integrate data from multiple sources seamlessly. This is best accomplished using either direct database connections (difficult because of security issues) or HL7 messaging (best known for lab and XRay data interchange). To improve patient care and minimize duplicate data entry we strive to integrate Ekiosk© with other systems. This can be used to automate Validated Outcomes Measures data collection, Demographic and Medical History Information. This has the potential to save a great deal of time and money. Automating patient data entry frees physicians and office staff and improves accuracy.
