- Poor technical support - can't talk to a human
- Too many clicks - takes much longer to see a patient
- Not to my style of practice - one canned EMR fits all
The following few tips could guide you:
- Decision based solely on lower cost is seldom wise. Remember, there is no such thing as free lunch. Find good value for your money.
- Trial run the system and the company through their paces for one or more months, even if you have to pay for it. You will quickly find out if this marriage will work out for you.
- Do not hesitate to demand that vendor adapt the system to your preference and needs. Good vendors would do it willingly and perhaps at no cost to you.
- Compared with the larger vendors, smaller companies often are very responsive, offer a cutting edge product, and more interested in working with you.
I hope you have made a wise choice in selecting the right EMR for your practice. If you have not, it is better to bail out early than to put up with it. It will frustrate you, slow you down, and cost you more in the long run. If you are still shopping, do not follow the herd blindly, do your own dilligence.
