Bariatric Surgery EMR Buyers Guide

K Marsh
  • by K Marsh ,
  • Last Updated: 10 Aug, 2017 3:27 PM

Bariatric surgeons have high data inflow that needs to be managed on one platform for quick retrieval and review. They also need an electronic medical record that has robust surgical workflow management that supervises pre- and post-op tracking, and risk mitigation. The EMR needs to be highly connected to labs and diagnostic equipment for accurate, up-to-date data, as well as alerts in case of allergies.

Features of Bariatric Surgery EMR

Specialty Templates – Bariatric surgery has very specific diagnosis and treatment plans. Customizable precise templates will save time, and generate more accurate SOAP notes. Some of the templates specific to bariatric surgery are:

  • Biliopancreatic Diversion
  • Endoluminal Sleeve
  • Vertical Banded Gastroplasty
  • Adjustable Gastric Band
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Intragastric Balloon
  • Gastric Plication
  • Gastric Bypass
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy with Duodenal Switch
  • Implantable Gastric Stimulation

Vital Sign Management – Bariatrics measure more than the basic vital signs. EMR designed for bariatric surgery should have real-time vital sign management including options related to bariatrics such as BMI, pain level, waist circumference, weight gain/loss, total body water, etc.

ICD/CPT CodingBariatric EMR software should have automated, built-in ICD-10 and CPT codes for E&M coding, ensuring a smooth and accurate billing process.

Surgical Workflow Management – Surgical workflow should be easy to manage and should have proper charting for pre-, peri- and post-operative data. The electronic medical record should also host graphs and charts to easily view patient progress, and overall health.

Risk Mitigation – Bariatric EMR should have the ability to get patient signature on consent forms through e-pens. The risk mitigation feature should also keep track of patient medication, and send alerts and appointment reminders to the patient.

Medication Management and Alerts – Malnutrition is a great risk after bariatric surgery procedures. To mitigate the risk of malnutrition, and other post-op risks, the EMR should have a medication management alert that also tracks patient weight loss, alerting physicians if it goes beyond a healthy point. A robust patient portal allowing greater connectivity between doctor and patient is also ideal.

Lab & Equipment Integration – To keep track of all patient data in one place Bariatric Surgery EMR (electronic medical record) and EHR (electronic health record) should be fully integrated with labs, pharmacies and diagnostic equipment ensuring all patient information is available in their file for comprehensive viewing.
