3 ESSENTIAL FEATURES YOUR NEONATAL EHRS SHOULD HAVE

Neonatal patients are unique – their treatment often begins before birth and continues through delivery and admission into a regular nursery or a neonatal intensive care unit. Keeping track of electronic health records (EHRs) can be critical to providing the best care for the smallest patients, especially given the potential for unexpected complications. In a recent article for Becker’s Hospital Review, we discussed three unique features that your neonatology EHRs should have:

  • A design that is tailored to neonatologists, with areas to document initial newborn screenings, fluid and electrolyte levels, etc.
  • The ability to integrate completely into existing hospital-wide EHRs, with the appropriate accreditation
  • An Internet-based software, so the IT admins can access the system remotely and address issues quickly
