It's unwise to pay too much ...but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money ... that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do.
The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. It cant be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better
You must wonder what it has got to with an EMR. Though seemingly archaic, this pearl of a statement aptly applies to the choice you make in selecting an EMR. Seeking good value for the money is important; however, when price becomes the overriding or the only consideration, then you must think about the John Ruskin law. Many physicians have been stung with poor quality systems and lack of customer support when they decided on price only. With courteous and prompt customer support the EMR experience can be enjoyable. We at nAbleMD believe in the old-fashioned way - "the customer comes first."
