Good Review of EMR Consultants

I found this five part series which discusses the pros, cons, challenges and benefits of using an EMR consultant. Check them out:
Benefits of Using an EMR/EHR Consultant – Selection Process
Benefits of Using an EMR/EHR Consultant – EMR Training
Benefits of Using an EMR/EHR Consultant – Clinical Process Mapping
Benefits of Using an EMR/EHR Consultant – Comprehensive Technology Support
Benefits of Using an EMR/EHR Consultant – Improved Clinical Buy-in

The important thing to remember is the difference between EMR salespeople that call themselves consultants. There’s a big difference. Don’t be confused into thinking they’re really EMR consultants when all they want to do is sell you a certain EMR product.


Welcome to EMR and EHR!!

We’re just getting this website going to display links to some of the very best EMR (electronic medical record) and EHR (electronic health record) related content on the internet. Our goal is to help inform more doctors about all the great information that’s available online to those searching for information on EMR and EHR.

With the latest billions of dollars available to doctors in the HITECH Act (ARRA), interest in EMR and EHR has never been higher. Hopefully we can have an impact by helping doctors justify the EMR implementation decision, select the right EMR company, and have a successful EMR implementation.

Just to get started here’s a few useful links:

Also, take a look and start participating in the EMR, EHR and HIPAA wiki.
