Most medical records are still stored on paper, which makes it hard to coordinate healthcare, measure quality or reduce medical errors. It’s estimated that storing medical records on paper costs twice as much as electronic claims. There is expected to a major push in the U.S. health care system to adopt standards-based electronic health information systems, including electronic health records, which will impact medical software development and healthcare software. In particular, HIPAA compliance software, which govern standards for claims administration and health information security and privacy, uses EDI (electronic data interchange) standards for standards based data exchange for electronic medical records (EMR).
Other information exchange standards must be considered for health records management and medical software development. For example, HL7 (Health Level 7) governs electronic medical records related to clinical and administrative data.
Overall, discussions around electronic medical records (EMR) are leading to an increase in medical software development projects that affect how software developers construct custom healthcare software and assess database designs for health records management. EMR applications for mobile devices and smartphone software development provide new options for health records management.
