Healthcare technology is becoming widely adopted by Physicians across the country. In January 2016, 59% of providers reported using an EHR (Electronic Health Records). With adoption increasing year-over-year and the flood of EHR’s to choose from, it’s become a daunting task for a Physician to select what’s right for them. At the utmost importance, a Physician should consider HIT (Health Information Technology) certified EHR to avoid any CMS penalties (if eligible). According to HealthIT.gov, there are three key elements to help a Physician with their search:
- Understand if and how a vendor’s product will accomplish the key goals of the practice. Essentially, a test drive of your specific needs with the vendor’s product. Provide the vendor with patient and office scenarios that they may use to customize their product demonstration.
- Clarify start-up pricing before selecting an EHR system (hardware, software, maintenance and upgrade costs, option of phased payments, interfaces for labs and pharmacies, cost to connect to health information exchange (HIE), customized quality reports)
- Define implementation support (amount, schedule, information on trainer(s) such as their communication efficiency and experience with product and company)
