ATLANTA, Feb. 12, 2013 -- Hospitals, clinics and office-based physicians are increasingly turning to electronic medical records as they prepare for the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care (PPAHC) act, says Albert Woodard, CEO of Atlanta-based Business Computer Applications, a company devoted to digitizing medical records.  Â
"Medical practitioners are bracing for a triple whammy as, in addition to the PPAHC, they are also facing a wave of retiring baby boomers coupled with a predicted shortage of qualified medical staff," says Woodard. Some 80 million aging baby boomers are landing on Medicare roles at a rate of 7,000 a day according to AARP; the PPAHC is expected to flood the system with another 32 million patients; and a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services forecast says health care staff shortages will worsen in 2014.
"The strain all of this will put on our health care system is enormous," says Woodard, "thus forcing medical providers to search for more efficient and effective methods to operate their practices."
Woodard singled out a December 2012 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicating that across the U.S. office-based physicians are increasingly turning to electronic medical records (EMRs). "EMRs can aid in improving quality of care, reduce errors and increase efficiency by making patients' medical history accessible to anybody who treats them," he says.

"EMRs can help reduce errors, provide better access to health information, improve care coordination, save millions of dollars and alleviate a shortage of qualified healthcare professionals," says Woodard.

Hospitals, clinics and office-based physicians are no different than any other business across the country as they prepare for the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care (PPAHC) act says Albert Woodard, CEO of Atlanta-based Business Computer Applications, a company devoted to digitizing medical records.
"Unlike a retail or service company though, medical practitioners are bracing for a triple whammy as, in addition to the PPAHC, they are also facing a wave of retiring baby boomers coupled with a predicted shortage of qualified medical staff," says Some 80 million aging baby boomers are landing on Medicare roles at a rate of 7,000 a day according to AARP ; the PPAHC is expected to flood the system with another 32 million patients; and a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services forecast says health care staff shortages will worsen in 2014.

"I've experienced how health care providers throughout the U.S - ranging from non-profit clinics and private practices to hospitals and correctional healthcare systems - are using EMRs to help reduce errors, provide better access to health information, improve care coordination, save millions of dollars and alleviate a shortage of qualified healthcare professionals," says Woodard.

ATLANTA, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Inefficient paper records are choking the U.S. health care industry and impeding delivery of even better patient care, says Albert Woodard, CEO of Atlanta-based Business Computer Applications (BCA), a company devoted to digitizing medical records.
Woodard says the current system, clogged with paper records, makes it difficult to coordinate care, routinely measure quality, reduce medical errors and react to emergency situations following natural or man-made disasters.
He says the situation will only get worse with 80 million aging baby boomers now landing on Medicare roles at a rate of 7,000 a day and the federal government's planned overhaul of health care expected to flood the system with 32 million more patients.
"The healthcare industry needs to catch up with other American industries," he says. "Tools like electronic medical records (EMR) are the 'grease' because they enable primary care physicians to share information, and coordinate the delivery of care," he says. Studies show the U.S. trails a number of other countries in the use of EMR systems with only 15-20 percent of U.S. physicians' offices and 20-25 percent of hospitals adopting such systems.
He says that disasters such as the tornadoes that tore through North Georgia last year could have severely hampered the care of patients if the storms hit local hospitals and destroyed their paper records as happened in New Orleans after Katrina. When a tornado flattened Joplin, Missouri and sucked up its hospital's patient files and X-rays, doctors were able to treat patients in a makeshift parking lot clinic without missing a beat because all records there had been switched from paper to electronic medical records (EMR).
"Hospitals, doctors, clinics and others are reluctant to adopt systems due to standardization, concerns about privacy, but mostly uncertainty about what's happening in the health care industry, particularly the health care law currently being reviewed by the Supreme Court," Woodard says.
