What is Medical Professor™?
Medical Professor™ is a tool by which Emergency Room and Urgent Care doctors document their interactions with a patient (e.g. history, physical examination, lab results). As a physician interacts with a sick patient in the Emergency Room, he takes note of the encounter in an electronic medical record (the EMR). The EMR is part of a larger program called the Electronic Health Record (HER) which contains the entire history of encounters and medical information for a patient.
If The Medical Professor was a person, we like to think that he is smart, intelligent, brilliant and cooperative! He is your partner to deliver the right piece of advice at the right time. He is always there supporting the diagnostic process, keeping an eye out for the right diagnosis. He is helping maintain the highest quality of medical care, he understands that humans can’t remember everything, all the time. He understands cognitive bias and how to avoid it. He will sometimes pull information from various parts of the chart and present the practitioner with a reminder or a diagnostic possibility.
Why was Medical Professor™ created?
Huge companies dominate the EHR space. Each has created their own EMR for various specialties. They are hard to use. Ancient IT platforms, one size fits all. They have not paid attention to making a program that fits the specific needs of various specialties, including emergency medicine. This has created incredible frustration in the physician community. Physicians close to retirement are leaving rather than suffer through making medical charts. The EMR was supposed to solve so many problems. It would be faster and easier to write longhand or type.
In response to the overwhelming frustration expressed by many physicians using electronic medical records and the emergence of a new technology protocol, a group of medical-legal experts, billing & reimbursement experts, and physician workflow experts built the most intuitive physician documentation solution that can be easily activated within the existing framework of all major enterprise EHR systems.
This is a program created by emergency physicians for emergency physicians. It is incredibly intelligent and actually helps lead practitioners toward the right diagnosis. It helps the doctor think and remember things with key medical references and notifications seamlessly built in. Creating a chart is very fast and emergency practitioners need fast. There is nothing like it on the planet.
