30 | FALL 2014 says that whenever all pertinent infor- mation is readily available and a system alerts physicians to abnormalities, possible side effects, interactions and recommendations, physicians are less likely to miss things and more likely to address issues to a currently accepted standard of care. "The dynamic aspect of all this data helps our physicians with continuity of care," he says. "Our patients can walk into any of our clin- ics over a large geographical area and fnd that the same information plan and recommendations are available to each of our physicians. Addition- ally, the availability of this data over a virtual private network from outside our practice allows our physicians and nurse practitioners to access all patient information 24/7 for hospitalized pa- tients or emergency room admissions." Instant availability of information, trending information and help with the appropriateness of E&M codes are his favorite features of the system. "Unlike general hospital systems, where one has to wade through pages and pages of information, this sys- tem does what an electronic medical record is supposed to do: It gets the information, it presents it, it com- pares it, and it uses the information to actively suggest how we can improve patient care," Denys says. His wish list for future OMS system features includes an integrated OMS module linking cath lab data, angio- graphically and hemodynamically, to inventory, cost and billing. l David Geer is a frequent contributor to PracticeLink Magazine's Tech Notes department.
