Pricing is an important factor to many physicians when selecting an electronic medical record (EMR) system. Before you go ahead and decide you do not want to spend a lot on an EMR implementation – first go ahead and determine what you need out of an EMR system.
Are you looking for document management? Do you need an integrated e-prescribing system? Do you want an on-premise server or do you want a web-based EMR solution? Do you need hardware to support your new EMR?
Write out your needs and then make an EMR budget. Therefore, you have an idea of what you are willing to pay for an EMR. Keep in mind that every EMR vendor has different pricing; however, there are basic fees that are always the same. Learn about these EMR fees so you can accurately compare vendors.
