Patagonia Health has recently rolled out a new Electronic Health Record (EHR) system feature, now in use at Franklin County Health Department. The new “photo capture” functionality will allow users to quickly take a patient’s photo at the time of registration and easily click and save to his/her Electronic Health Record.
Any camera which connects to the computer or is built into it will work. This includes devices such as smart phones, portable digital cameras, or computer mounted versions. Cameras at check-in can capture a current photo of each patient which can then be uploaded directly into the EHR.
The addition of a photo in the patient’s health record has proven effective in reducing errors, ensuring that correct records are pulled for each patient; this is critical in providing accurate care.
This recent system enhancement removes the manual save and upload previously required. Since most people are familiar with taking pictures, little to no training is required. The biggest benefit of adding a patients’ photo is the visual confirmation of pulling the correct record for each patient, especially for patients with common names.
