Toll Free Sales:
Yes, it's quite likely that you've heard that the Federal Stimulus package will effectively pay for your Electronic Medical Records software. And this is absolutely true. Using Medicare and Medicaid rebates, your medical EMR software system is close to, or even free if adopted for "meaningful use" by the end of 2010.
What's more, depending on your needs, you may be able to get a full appointment scheduling and medical practice management software package at dramatically reduced cost, also because of the stimulus. So the savings are clear. And, if you've researched the process, you likely understand that the return on investment for a medical records software system is extremely fast, even without the stimulus. You've decided to adopt one into your practice or clinic. Where to now?
Considering Your Staff
If your practice is considering EMR implementation, perhaps a decision long in the works, or based upon the recent Federal Stimulus package, there are a number of important considerations to be considered. The fact is, adopting an EMR software system into your practice will change its overall workflow and efficiencies, and will require some adaptation from paper patient medical records (link). Deciding on which vendor will handle your EMR implementation is important, and knowing this, they should stress planning over everything else. A properly planned EMR software adoption means faster efficiencies, and faster return on investment.
Time Spent Today, Helps Exponentially Tomorrow
Basically, the more comprehensive your planning process with EMR implementation, the more likely your EMR software system adoption goes smoothly. There are many parts to the EMR implementation process, including converting data from paper patient medical records to EMR form, redesigning your workflows to work with an electronic medical records format, staff training, security and system administration. Electronic Medical Records Group structures its EMR implementation plan to fit your practice, as opposed to trying to "fit you to a solution". We aim to have your EMR software system up and running with minimal frustration, and maximum satisfaction.
Every physician adopting an electronic patient records system needs to set goals for what the application should provide. It is always best to set larger, more general goals, and then move on to smaller objectives in order to accomplish these goals. Some examples of larger goals might be: to create stringent security controls to ensure your EMR system and patient charts cannot be compromised. Another one might be to assess which reports your EMR software could generate to help operation of the practice best. Identifying the goals of your EMR implementation should include full staff participation, as the users often provide the best ideas to create efficient workflow.
Creating Flexible Timelines
Few points of an EMR implementation plan are more controversial than the timelines for full adoption. EMR software adoption, although longer term can provide a great many benefits, is in the short term an evolving process. Attempting to rush the adoption of a full practice management and electronic medical records system, particularly in clinics where they have never been used before, can be a huge mistake. Taking the time out to ensure you understand the limits of your staff, and their strengths, ensures that your practice benefits to its maximum level.
