Electronic Medical Record Optimization
Due to less than optimal staffing and time limitations, employees at physician practices are often provided minimal training by Electronic Medical Record (EMR) vendors. As a result, the staff may not have been educated on valuable EMR features and much time is lost in an effort to achieve desired results.
When it comes to making decisions on how to get the most out of your EMR, each of the following scenarios present their own set of challenges:
- New EMR Installation – The selection of the EMR and Practice Management System (PM) the organization chooses to utilize
- EMR Optimization/Enhancement – The efficient use of existing systems to develop workflows and improve/create interfaces or additional bolt-on systems
- EMR Conversion – The decision to abandon an existing EMR in favor of an EMR that is better suited for the practice
