According to a recent article by Carolyn Hartley, President of Physicians EHR, small physician practices will redefine the look and feel of EHR / EMRs.
From our perspective, as health care technologies have evolved, doctors are providing more and more sophisticated medical capability, but are relying on archaic systems of record keeping.
Why the reluctance to move from paper records? Physicians often cite the obvious problems of implementation, disruption of practice, and cost, both initial and ongoing.
But as the article indicates, small practice physicians are in the perfect position to dictate the type of EMR they need - they represent a large portion of the market for EMR developers, and have been slow to adopt on platforms that don't make sense. That puts you, the physician, in the drivers seat. By working with a vendor with a customizable product, you can build a solution that makes sense for your practice, with the features that are most important to you.
XLEMR has worked specifically with small practice physicians to develop a product that meets their needs while evaporating the above objections; allowing the small practice physician to bring his record keeping up to the same level of sophistication as the rest of his practice, at a cost that makes sense for a small practice.
