Easily Document Patient Exam Findings at the Bedside

Replace Paper Forms with Electronic Clinical Documents (ECDs)

With the HarmoniMD™ System, almost any form can be recreated into an electronic clinical document.

These customized electronic clinical documents allow healthcare staff to order tests and medications, record findings, and create patient records.

HarmoniMD’s Electronic Clinical Documents are accessible on tablets (if using HarmoniMD HIS with HarmoniMD Mobile), laptops, or desktop computers. Physicians can even fill out ECDs and review patient data remotely over a cellular network.

Electronic Clinical Documents Save Time and Money

Go Paperless and Save

An individual patient visit can generate a dozen or more paper documents, all of which need to be managed and stored in a chart.

What does this cost? The cost of the chart, the paper and ink; the cost of documents (such as evaluations, prescriptions, images, etc.) and the wasted paper when these are updated; the employees who fill out the documents; the clerks who transport the documents from department to department; the medical records staff who assemble and store the charts; time spent by staff waiting for test orders to be delivered from the pharmacy and imaging departments; and more. All these total to a considerable amount of time and money.

HarmoniMD’s Electronic Clinical Documents eliminate the need for the majority of these costs. Both immediately and over the long term, monetary and staffing savings accrue as workflows become more efficient.

Designed with Compliance in Mind

Electronic Clinical Documents Make Reporting Easy

Electronic Clinical Documents reflect a culture of compliance because nothing is ever erased or lost. Anything captured in an ECD can be used in a report. This facilitates documenting employee compliance, user engagement, and workflow completion.

Workflow and protocol standards are built-in features of ECDs. As ECDs are completed and saved in the patient chart, the documentation is integrated into facility reporting available to administrators and department managers. ECD use can be tracked by user or by the electronic form itself.

The customized set of Electronic Clinical Documents we build for you directly drives your institutional protocols and defines the structured clinical data you collect during the patient care encounter. These protocols can be aligned with your compliance standards as well as Clinical Best Practices, all of which can be easily updated facility-wide when clinical care guidelines change.
