How long does an emr stay online? Are mds required to archive them after a certain time? Can a patient request to send them to archives sooner?

How long does an emr stay online? Are mds required to archive them after a certain time? Can a patient request to send them to archives sooner?

Variable: Archiving electronic records is variable. Typically the encounter visits and reports remain active, but the actual radiology images (CT scans, MRI, X-rays) become archived after a certain number of months or few years because of the very large amount of file sizes of image sets, which can be in hundreds of images.
I don't see a benefit of early arch.; check with clinic IT dept to see if an option ...Read more

Why the amoeba symptoms start almost 3 weeks later but CDC says 2 wk l8r http://www. Wbiw. Com/local/archive/2012/09/loogootee-family-wants-somethi. Php?

Why the amoeba symptoms start almost 3 weeks later but CDC says 2 wk l8r http://www. Wbiw. Com/local/archive/2012/09/loogootee-family-wants-somethi. Php?

People vary: It's simply wrong to try to match your symptoms and signs to what's average. Amebiasis is famously variably, waxing and waning. The bottom line is if you have amebiasis with e histolytica, diagnosed as such by an evidence-based physician, you need to get treated. There's no place for denial here. ...Read more

What is the probability someone in a large medical group is looking at your EMR when they shouldn't be? Hundreds have access to the same system. Scary

What is the probability someone in a large medical group is looking at your EMR when they shouldn't be? Hundreds have access to the same system. Scary

Probably very low: Your concern is understandable. However, most medical practices and groups take personal health privacy very seriously and train their employees about it. Under federal law (HIPAA, which you can google for details), the penalties for non-compliance are very severe, usually $5, 000 fine. Complaints or claims about breeches of confidentiality are rare. ...Read more

Is there any good, consistent data that show emr's improve patient disease outcomes?

Is there any good, consistent data that show emr's improve patient disease outcomes?

None whatsoever: Current studies and data analysis show that EMRs do not improve disease outcomes. There seems to be no positive effect of these computer systems on health. They are good for data mining which might help in the future but the data mining currently is by regulators and insurance companies trying to save money. ...Read more

IF MD wrote "anxiety" in the EMR notes, but didn't list it as a diagnosis on the insurance, does that mean not official?

IF MD wrote "anxiety" in the EMR notes, but didn't list it as a diagnosis on the insurance, does that mean not official?

No special meaning: The medical chart is the medical chart... every patient has one. The insurance is just insurance... NOT every patient has insurance. Thus, what is on the insurance claim should not be interpreted as having any special meaning... because many people do NOT have insurance and thus this issue would not exist for them. The chart has the information, and the insurance claim has no influence on a chart. ...Read more

How to eat good?

How to eat good?

Some thoughts...: Successful diets require that a person stick to a plan for months or years, so easier goals and small milestones are good. She must be happy with the foods she gets to eat, so severe calorie restriction is not successful. Eat vegetables with little sauce or dressing. Look for healthier oils. Don't use clarified butter (an animal fat) or eat too many egg yolks. Sugar is unhealthy; try to avoid it. ...Read more

Depends: The goal of ehrs is to ideally prevent errors and duplication of tests and procedures. However, it has often resulted in inaccurate excessive documentation, transcription errors, and lost productivity (which varies - some providers are more productive).

Why not? It is yummy: Unless you are allergic to chocolate (or cannot swallow), there is no reason why you can't. I suspect that you really mean how much can you eat? Dark chocolates contain good amount of flavenoids which have good health benefits, but like anything else, excess is not a good thing. If you have trouble with diabetes, then more restriction is needed. Consult doc regularly. Good luck. ...Read more
