See The Power of Interoperability

By on Feb 19, 2024 in Senior Living, Technology

Interoperable electronic health records (EHRs) provide immense value in senior living, especially when you’re utilizing an all-in-one solution like Yardi EHR. By offering every feature you need on a single platform — and channeling interoperability via verified interface partners — Yardi EHR provides more value than your average platform.

Read on to discover more about how interoperable EHRs work (and see what makes Yardi EHR stand out from the crowd).

What is interoperability?

Interoperability allows information systems to seamlessly exchange data with one another. In senior living, interoperable EHRs help you access real-time health information, save time, mitigate errors, support resident safety and more.

Are EHRs different from EMRs?

It’s important to recognize the distinction between EHRs and EMRs when discussing interoperability, so here’s a breakdown of the difference:

An electronic health record such as Yardi EHR is a digital record of a resident’s chart — plus much more — stored in a dynamic online platform. EHRs connect all aspects of care by allowing multiple providers to access real-time resident data, submit updates and communicate from anywhere.

An electronic medical record, on the other hand, is a digital record of a resident’s chart stored in a computer and accessible by a single provider.
