The only thing that remains the same is change.
In today’s ever-changing world, it sometimes feels as if we can’t keep up. There are days when we may feel like we just can’t stay on top of all the new gizmos and gadgets that are supposed to make our lives so much easier. In today’s techno-savvy world, it’s very easy to feel overwhelmed with all the “latest” and “greatest.”
The medical arena is no different. In fact, that’s a place where things must constantly change in order to satisfy so many groups of people. We have to be “cutting edge” for our younger patients – yet still easy-to-use and understand for the older generation. We have to have all required systems that the government says we need in order to satisfy Meaningful Use – but they must be easy to operate and understand by the general user, and still remain clinically useful.
Choosing an Electronic Health Record is not easy. It must be one that meets government requirements for Meaningful Use, and it must be one that is intuitive to the way you practice medicine and interact with your patients.
Make sure you understand everything your EHR vendor has to offer. Most importantly, make sure the EHR system you choose can keep up with these changing times.
