Choosing an EHR

If you are already an expert/experienced user of EHR at your practice, we congratulate you on your success. And if the common sentiment we hear from healthcare professionals is indicative of the frustrations and headaches involved in this process, you are over the hard part. Challenges remain as you need to continually stay up with the stage 2 MU requirements. But we believe this process will get easier for you and your staff.

If you are still undecided about which product to select, and are overwhelmed with the choices presented (bombarded is probably a more appropriate word), then we are here to help you in the journey. Yes, it is a difficult first step to face the reality of fast paced change, concerning IT that is a bit out of your comfort zone. But you have very little choice. Ignore the requirement to transition to an EHR at your own peril. Starting in 2015, there will be penalties from CMS, and more importantly, your practice will lose market value if it is not keeping up with the times.

At last count, there are more than 200 vendors across the nation peddling their certified products. Some are small players, and others are too big for your practice needs. And a vast majority fall somewhere in between. So, how do you choose? Would you want to spend the next 3 to 6 months evaluating multiple products, trying to select from what seem like comparable offerings, but can't make an informed decision? Yes, there is a right product for you out there, but which one? We believe in the "once and done" selection process. Meaning, we want to help you get it right the first time, one time, and be done. But we are NOT a reseller for EHR products. The reason is simple: We are client centric, not product centric. Call us at 810-730-3234 to discuss how we can help you.
