EHR implementation

From assessing your readiness to selecting a vendor and using the technology in daily practice, implementation of an electronic health record system is a big transition for a dermatology practice. Dermatologists should plan carefully and proceed strategically with the selection, purchase and implementation of this software.

An EHR implementation can be a considerable undertaking, but if done successfully a practice can enjoy benefits in improved efficiencies and cost savings.
