- More Accurate Treatment: Meditech EHR allows users to access a patient’s entire medical history. The software can recognize patterns and help predict diagnosis, enabling you to provide more accurate treatment the first time around.
- More Patient Engagement: Patients can book appointments, pre-register, answer pre-visit questionnaires and communicate with their physician(s). Meditech also provides tools to support remote patient monitoring as well as virtual patient visits.
- Security of Information: Storing information in Meditech EHR servers assures that sensitive documents are kept secure. You no longer run the risk of losing physically-stored medical documents due to misplacement, tampering, destruction or theft. Only certain users are given access to patient data.
