The Medical Technology Revolution: How Medical Software Systems Are Changing the Game

To say that technology is evolving at lightening speed is truly an understatement. In fact, technology has evolved so rapidly that the world is a much different place than it was only 10 years ago. Not only has technology completely revolutionized the ways in which people live, work, and play, it’s also changed the way people heal.


Perhaps the most notable technological advances are those seen in the field of medicine. Not only are people living longer, healthier lives than ever before thanks to advances in both preventative and reactive medicine, but the quality of their lives has drastically improved, even if they are diagnosed with or suffer from a chronic illness.

Additional Support and Organization

In addition, technological advances have allowed health care providers to better treat their patients by providing better behind the scenes support and organization. Examples of this include streamlined practice management software, which also encompasses appointment software and electronic medical billing systems.

Better Patient Records

These highly advanced medical software systems allow physicians to maintain better patient records, which in turn expedites the process of evaluating and treating patients. Electronic medical records can improve a health care facility’s overall efficiency by 6% per year. In 2011, more than half — 55% — of physicians adopted electronic heath record (EHR) systems. Fast forward to 2013, and 78% of office based physicians were using some form of an EHR system, an 18% jump from 2001.

EHR Incentive Programs

These critical systems have become so popular that there are several incentive programs for physicians who take advantage of them. Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs provide payments to eligible medical professionals, hospitals, and critical access hospitals (CAHs) who adopt, implement, upgrade or demonstrate meaningful use of certified EHR technology.

Cloud Technology and the iPad EHR

An example of this technology is the iPad EHR, which can be used in a variety of ways in a medical practice. The cloud technology offered by the iPad EHR allows medical staff and physicians to enter, store, and organize patient information and records with ease. As opposed to handwritten medical documents that can easily be misread due to illegible handwriting or are susceptible to deterioration over time, iPad EHRs provide medical practitioners with accurate, clear, and safely stored patient files.
