There are several benefits to an EMR such as:
• Reduce expenses
• Increase revenue
• Reduce medical errors
• HIPAA Compliant
• Easily Accessible
• Reduce Transcription
Although there are several benefits, physicians are still resisting an EMR. Several physicians have stated that they do not want to change and they do not like technology. This statement is ironic because physicians use state of the art equipment to diagnosis and provide treatment to patients.
I guess the reason may be because they believe EMRs will slow down their workflow. Yes, there is a learning curve; however, once you learn how to use an EMR it will actually enhance your practice. An EMR will also interface with all of your other medical equipment.
So begin comparing EMRs and see which product is the best EMR for you!
