Top Pediatric EMR Features

Pediatric EMR for PediatriciansHere are the Top 11 Certified Pediatric EMR Software features that Pediatricians are looking for when selecting a Certified EMR Software because they add significant value to their practice:

1. Workflow that's tailored to pediatrics

EMR software meant for adults or for low-volume practices may not fit with your practice. Your pediatric EMR software should be able to handle the high-volume, rapid turnover, short notice nature of a pediatric practice, as well as store and secure sensitive data.

It should also easily access and incorporate into your chart notes, age and gender specific growth charts with a single click. Smooth transition logic intuitively leading you through your customized workflow.

2. Immunization managementImmunization_Registry_Pediatric_ehr

Particularly during the early years of their lives, children get a lot of shots. The software needs to be able to track, manage, and alert you to when the child needs to schedule, say, her next hepatitis vaccine. It should also track the batch and lot number of the immunization given.

3. Drug alert system just for pediatrics

Some medicines are fine for adults, but others can be dangerous - even fatal - for children. When you're prescribing medicine, you need to be able to quickly cross-check and verify that the drug won't harm the child more than help him, and that's why it's important to have that kind of alerting system in your software.

4. Child-specific templates

In addition to standard well-visit templates that chart weight, height, head circumference, and other metrics, pediatric EMR software needs to also be able to generate things like camp, sports, and school records. This would also include templates for notes like school notes, allergy notes, and flu  notes. It should allow you to perform well child exams through the use of knowledge-based templates or pre-populated intuitive learning software design. Less clicks, less drop downs, summary face sheet just like you are used to.
