There are literally hundreds of electronic medical record (EMR) systems from which to choose. Nitin Chhoda is a recognized authority on the adoption, selection and implementation of an EMR and offered physical therapists a new eight-point checklist to ensure they choose the right EMR for their practice.
Denville, NJ (PRWEB) January 12, 2013
“You have to evaluate your practice and decide exactly what it is you want the EMR to accomplish before beginning the selection process,” said Chhoda. “Form a team to assess each one and above all else, adopt an EMR that’s specifically designed for a physical therapy practice. Don’t rely on a one-size-fits-all solution. It won’t benefit the practice and you’ll only be setting yourself up for a disaster down the road.”
Chhoda was one of the first in the nation to begin utilizing EMR technology and he said just the process of evaluating an EMR can be exhausting, while actual adoption of the system can be a frightening experience for many. To help practitioners make the transition process as easy as possible, he’s offering eight new tips for EMR success.
The Affordable Health Care Act demands adoption and implementation of an EMR by 2014, as well as meeting Meaningful Use standards. Chhoda’s new eight-point checklist helps make selection and installation of an EMR easier, less frightening and ensure therapists have the right EMR tools for their practice.
