But What About the Preventative Care?
With today’s EMR capabilities and adjunct technologies, preventative care can be kept up to date without the need for face-to-face in person doctor visits.
- EMR capabilities allow for searches and mass email notifications (or even traditional paper letter mail) for patients who due for tests.
- When the patient calls in for the Rx Renewal in the first place, that prompts the doctor and staff to review the chart for preventative care that is due.
Again, bloodwork, immunizations, mammograms, colon screening, BMDs, etc, can all be ordered without the need to see the doctor in person.
