If your healthcare organization is embarking on an electronic health record (EHR) implementation project, selecting the right provider will be a challenging task. It takes time and planning to find the EHR system that meets your needs. So it’s important to know what to look for in an EHR provider.
Importance of choosing the right EHR provider
EHRs are now an integral part of modern healthcare, as they enhance the efficiency of clinicians and improve the quality of care to patients. Since EHRs contain critical information about a patient’s medical history, medications, lab and test results, and much more, keeping them safe and protected from cyberattacks is top priority. That’s why choosing the right EHR provider is such an important decision.
What to look for in an EHR provider
The EHR provider must have a system that is relevant and interoperable. Healthcare organizations should closely review EHR systems to ensure that they measure up to the needs of the organization. They must also be able to integrate with the technology currently in place, in order to ensure interoperability. The EHR system must align closely to the needs of the healthcare organization.
The EHR provider should only sell certified EHR technology. In particular the technology ought to meet the criteria of the EHR Incentive Program, and therefore have the ability to meet meaningful use benchmarks.
The EHR system being provided by the vendor should have a proven record of success. Ideally, customers should ask to see the system in action by visiting a healthcare organization similar to their own, which has already implemented the EHR system being considered.
