Making the right decision about the selection of an EHR for your practice is not only critical to attaining Meaningful Use, it can have a long term positive or negative impact on its future success. There are several critical factors that medical practices often overlook when making these huge purchase decisions and which only come to light after it’s too late! The greatest leverage you have to ensure that you get the performance you will need from a vendor is before a contract is signed.
Finding the right system for a medical organization goes far beyond the quality of its clinical content for a particular specialty, although this is very important. Some examples of factors that are sometimes overlooked include the level of integration the EHR has with your practice management system, how well the billing functionality can handle the requirements of the state in which you practice, where the product is in its life cycle and future hidden costs involved in staying compliant with Meaningful use.
