Don’t Wait Until the New Year to Implement EHR Software
As excited as you may be about EHR software, there could be something holding you back: the calendar.
It’s common for medical practices to wait until the beginning of the year to make major changes. While January isn’t that far off, there is no point in sitting back and waiting around.
Now is the time to take full advantage of electronic health record software. By implementing a system now, not later, you can take advantage of six months worth of benefits.
Here are three reasons why you shouldn’t wait until the new year to get started:
- Waiting to implement software means waiting to take advantage of the technology. Do you really want to miss out while other practices are already using EHR software to their advantage?
- You have the time right now. If you have the time right now to learn more about EHR software, implement the technology, and train others, it’s best that you don’t let the opportunity slip through your fingers.
- Other things will come up. You may have intentions to implement EHR software once the calendar turns, but then something happens: everything. The new year brings new challenges and responsibilities. As a result, you could once again put this on the backburner.
Even though electronic health record technology isn’t going anywhere, continuing to wait is never the best idea. You could implement this software today and begin taking advantage of it tomorrow.
Is now the time for your practice to use EHR software? The answer may be yes!
