What is EMR?
There is a great quote on EMR by a famous author, Paul C. He said the following lines:
How To Choose The Right EMR Development Company
Planning needs a quick thinking on the reason why you would like to switch to EMR. You need to single out the main reason for doing this. You need to work out the EMR cost benefit analysis or find out the ROI of switching to EMR. Since, the ROI is a better metric of assessing whether to switch to EMR, it is better if you work out the ROI.
EMR vendor selection is a very important step in pursuing the right EMR development company because the technical proficiency of the vendor or the company introducing the EMR system will have to be analyzed. Also important is the nature of the system that is being introduced. The physician will need to train and acquaint his patients with the new EMR system.
A suitable request for proposal needs to be floated to the shortlisted vendors or development companies and the costs of the same need to be allocated over the heads like cost of the EMR system, installation of the system, training on the new application and travel expenses of the company staff in training patients.
Final considerations include small things like comfort level of your staff in working with the EMR system, comfort level of your patients in migrating to the new system. These also need to be looked at when choosing the right EMR development company.
