Electronic medical record adoption: The worst year of my professional life!Jan 13, 2010 09:45 EST
Our practice is still reeling from the strain of transitioning to a genuine electronic medical record system that allows proper database searches on par with quality initiatives such as "Get With the Guidelines." After selecting the vendor, the most difficult task was how to tackle data entry and we pondered three possibilities:
- Physician entry (time consuming)
- Clerical entry (costly and mistake ridden)
- Or neither (garbage EMR)
Now that our transition is complete, we are pleased to have a fully functional system of records despite the incredible amount of work that was involved. Have you taken the leap—or are you planning to take the leap—to EMR? What has been your experience of adopting electronic records?
