There is a new standard that all healthcare providers need to reach if they want to remain efficient. The use of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) is no longer something that can be seen as a luxury – it has reached an extremely relevant and crucial level of importance for both organizations and private practitioners.

Today, we are going to mention five important strategies to consider when implementing Electronic Medical Records in your private practice.

1-Ease of use

The EMR systems can be a bit complex for people getting started, but some of them provide a simpler interface than others. Look for one that is ideal for your needs and easy to understand.

2-Customer Service / Support Availability

If you are just getting started with Electronic Medical Records, you are likely to need assistance while you get used to the system. It’s important that your provider is able to give you an efficient level of support and customer service. Otherwise, you should engage a consultant that can support the implementation and training process.

3-Cost-effective

Getting a cost-effective system is important, but you need to make sure that you are not sacrificing quality. There are dozens of good quality EMR systems out there, so do some research and pick one that meets your needs. There are three common pricing models for EMR systems: 1. Cost per practitioner per month 2. Cost per visit per month 3. Cost per patient. I typically do a full analysis of the scalability of a private practice when determining the right pricing model for a practice.

4-Staff training   

If you have people working with you, it’s important to make sure that they are trained on the use of this system. I recommend creating an ongoing library of video training on quick tips for utilizing the system. This is necessary in order to ensure an efficient and effective workflow built around your Electronic Medical Records System.

5-Seek assistance from experts

If you feel that the process of choosing an EMR for your private practice is too daunting, just look for an expert that can help you find the right system for your specific needs. This is the best way to avoid wasting time, and you will get the best possible outcome thanks to the expert advice you receive.
