Physicians Spend 50% of Each Day on EHR Notes; 70% Say EHRs Negatively Impact Productivity

It’s no secret that EHRs have had a huge impact on the medical profession.

They impact every individual in the practice, take up a significant amount of the physician’s time, and can negatively effect revenue if claims aren’t completed correctly and submitted in a timely manner. 

Here are just a few recent statistics that demonstrate the need for a solution to the challenges and frustration presented by EHRs. 

According to a study published by the American College of Physicians in 2016 (1), and reinforced by a study published in 2017 by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, physicians are spending nearly half of each work day entering patient notes into their EHRs. It’s no surprise, then, that 70% of physicians polled in a 2016 Deloitte Study (2) said EHRs actually reduce their productivity. 

As many as 61% of medical reimbursement claims contain errors, and up to 50% of those errors are administrative (according to The Advisory Board (3) and the World Health Organization (4), respectively). 

Samantha by NoteSwift was designed to alleviate the challenges that plague EHR patient note entry.

Samantha simplifies the EHR patient charting process to a single screen, eliminating countless menus and clicks, and automatically assigns all required ICD10, SNOWMED and CPT codes to save physicians time and significantly reduce EHR frustration and physician burnout. Samantha’s proprietary, patent-pending technology parses and dynamically matches typed or dictated narrative text to identify structured, discrete data and automatically place it exactly where it needs to be in the EHR.

Automating the EHR entry process with Samantha by NoteSwift saves physicians 6-8 hours a week on patient charting, eliminates administrative errors, and ensures reimbursement claims are complete and accurate.
