Still thinking about switching from paper charts to an EHR for your practice? If you are like most doctors still using paper, you probably think an EHR is either going to come in between you and your patients or is just too expensive. The start-up costs and implementation can be daunting for some. However, hanging onto your paper-based ways may not be as beneficial for your practice.
As the previous sales coordinator at GroupOne Health Source, I've talked to a number of practices in the early stages of considering or evaluating an EMR/PM software. Some concerns I hear on a daily basis include:
- "An EMR is too expensive"
- "I don't have time to switch to an EMR"
- "I don't need an EMR to be a good doctor"
