On the surface, it may seem that EHRs and homeopathic health care have little in common. EHRs, or electronic health records, are a “modern” solution that brings patient medical histories, diagnoses, and treatments into the cyber world. Homeopathic health care involves applying ancient treatments and approaches to health into the medical spectrum in order to improve wellness.
When you dig deeper, however, it becomes obvious that EHRs and homeopathic health care actually have quite a bit in common. Both encourage and assist doctors in looking at the whole picture of a patient’s health. Both allow deeper understanding into the root causes of an ailment, injury, or condition that may allow for more thorough healing. Both are helping to bring medicine and wellness in the future. By bringing these two systems together, it may change the face of healthcare as we know it.
At homeopathic health centers, doctors go beyond prescribing scan tests to get to the root of medical issues. The Da Vinci Natural Health Center spends five hours with each patient in a process known as the IDEL Diagnostic Protocol. During the examination, physicians focus on Identifying the cause of ailments so that these causes can be Eliminated, which is where the “IDEL” comes from. Eliminating the cause of ailments is often more effective than merely suppressing symptoms, as traditional medicine does.
EHRs allow physicians to see a patient’s medical records in their entirety. When doctors can review a patient’s entire medical history – including things like dental visits, emotional counseling, surgeries, family history, and medications – it may allow for deeper insights into the causes of ailments. By combining homeopathic approaches to diagnosis and EHR use, physicians may be able to come up with more effective plans for treatment.
EHRs can serve to help homeopathic physicians improve treatment and avoid complications. In many cases, patients seek to combine a mixture of traditional and homeopathic treatments in hopes of achieving the best outcome. By having access to a record of all treatments that have been prescribed or administered, homeopathic doctors can make the most informed recommendations for diet, bioresonance therapy, and other treatments.
In addition to using EHRs to treat patients at the time when they come in, electronic records and communications can help homeopathic doctors to add their own notes and observations to the patient’s health history. Electronic medical billing may help homeopathic doctors to optimize the billing process and bring effective alternative treatments into the mainstream. By synchronizing these systems, patient outcomes may be improved in major ways.
