What are the advantages of having electronic records?

Storing all of your notes in a database means that the database may be searched. For example, you can quickly find all patients using a certain medication or all patients with a certain demographic (i.e., over age 60 or under age 17).

Billing reports are easily and quickly prepared. These can be automatically sent to a billing service (we provide that capacity, ask us about it) or to your own practice management software or medical billing software.

Unlike paper records, electronic notes are secure. Only individuals with passwords and the proper privileges can access the notes.

Electronic records are highly accessible. All records are available at any time from any location with an internet connection.

Electronic records are less easily lost or damaged, if they are properly backed up. ICANotes is backed up multiple times a day and daily backups are routinely stored at a different site.
