How Can an EMR Help You Serve More Patients in a Typical Day?

As a doctor, you want the best for your patients. You want to be able to provide them with the care that they need and deserve. However, the amount of time needed to look at each patient, study the symptoms, arrive at the diagnosis, and prescribe remedies allows doctors to see only a few patients each day. 

If a doctor were to speed up the whole process, the quality of patient experience rapidly reduces and this leaves many people feeling frustrated or annoyed because they are not getting what they feel like they deserve. 

Fortunately, there may be an answer! What if we told you that by using an EMR system in your office, you could actually serve more patients in one day? This way more happy customers who leave satisfied! Let's take a look at why an EMR system could be so helpful and how it can help you serve more patients in one day.

  • With an EMR system in place, you don’t need to get the primary details of the patient such as name and age as they enter the room. These details would already be fed into the system when they book an appointment.
  • If the patient is a regular visitor to your clinic, the system would already contain their medical history and previous prescriptions. This means the doctor does not have to waste precious time enquiring about those details either.
  • An EMR eliminates the time doctors spend copying patient information and writing prescriptions on paper documents. Typing is always faster than writing, and with the help of a voice assistant, one can even eliminate that. 


EMR systems allow you to maximize the amount of time that you spend with each patient. Rather than spending ten minutes or less per patient, an EMR system allows you to spend more time talking to the patient rather than engage in activities such as note taking and writing prescriptions. 

As a result, you can have more patients in your day and spend more time with each of them without having to worry about being rushed or not getting all questions answered. This will lead to happier patients as well as increased revenue because you can now see seven patients in place of five.
