It's no secret EMRs hold numerous benefits, such as enabling physicians and caregivers to make clinical decisions based on the data in the system. But issues arise and dangers are seen when the data in that EMR is incorrect – something that happens all too frequently thanks to the view/write/transcribe mentality of entering data.

"The old way of entering data into a record is looking at it in a monitor, writing in on a clipboard, and later transcribing it into the record. It's of great concern because it isn't timely and there are chances it can be inaccurate," said Sue Niemeier, chief nursing officer at Capsule, which develops connectivity technology.

"But when you introduce device integration into the picture, that goes away," she continued. "You also increase the direct patient care interaction, and you automate the recording of patient data. Suddenly, the whole world changes for that caregiver, and you're relying on that caregiver to truly be at the point of care, which is the real reason they went into their profession."

Niemeier expands on five ways device integration increases the value of data in your EMR.
