Here’s Why Your Last EHR Software Failed You
Are you thinking about giving EHR software another try? If so, there is a lot you can learn from the past.
Like many practices, you may have experienced an electronic health records failure that has you scared about what the future will bring.
Rather than let a bad experience hold you back, it’s time to pinpoint what went wrong the first time around. By doing this, you can make more informed and confident decisions in the future.
Here are three reasons why your last EHR software failed you:
- You didn’t put enough time into training. There is no denying the fact that this is a big change. If you want to experience EHR success, you need to put in the appropriate amount of work upfront.
Train, train, and train some more. You don’t want to stop doing this until you know your software like the back of your hand.
- You didn’t choose the right software solution. This is a common problem, as many people believe that all EHR software is the same.
Just because you made a poor decision in the past doesn’t mean you will do so again in the future. By putting more time into the comparison process you are in better position to make the right choice.
- Not enough people on board with the idea. Everyone in the practice must be dedicated to using EHR software. If half the practice is using the software and the rest are sticking with their old ways, the end result will be messy.
These are just some of the reasons why you may have experienced EHR failure in the past. If you want to avoid the same fate in the future, don’t let these mistakes get in the way the next time around.
