How to Make the Change to a New EHR Solution
Selecting an EHR solution is one of the best decisions you can make for your medical practice. But here’s something you may not think about: you could require a change in the future.
If for any reason you aren’t getting along with your current software, it’s time to think about a change. Doing so can be simple if you know which steps to take and how to avoid common problems.
Here are three things you need to do:
- Make a list of what went wrong. Was the learning curve too steep? Were staff members always making mistakes due to a complicated interface? Once you know what went wrong in the past, you can make changes to avoid this in the future
- List out your options. The last thing you want to do is make another mistake, so it’s imperative that you list your options and consider each one in great detail. Answer this question: which EHR solution will give the practice everything it needs, both now and in the future?
- Focus on features. ZenCharts, for example, is packed full of high level features. From data management to patient support, there are many details that deserve your attention. Make sure you know exactly what you are looking for in terms of features.
With this advice in mind, you should be able to make an efficient change from one EHR solution to another. Once you make the change, it’s time to get everyone on the same page. Soon enough, you’ll realize that you are now heading in the right direction!
