The Five Blunders to Avoid with EMR Selection
The importance of choosing the right physical therapy electronic medical records (EMR) system cannot be overstated. Your clinic will be investing time and resources into a solution that, if successful, will transform your practice into a streamlined, efficient, and profitable business; while increasing the productivity and satisfaction levels of your clinical and non-clinical staff.
Choosing an EMR solution that’s not right for your practice can cripple productivity, resulting in a significant decrease in reimbursements, lower standards of care, widespread staff dissatisfaction, and possibly endanger professional licensure status.
As a private practice owner, there are many choices available and the decision about which system to adopt can be overwhelming.
