Keys to EMR/EHR Success, Second Edition

The breakthrough book for medical practices eager to minimize the costs, confusion and outright risks of choosing and implementing an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system.

In this revised second edition, nationally recognized expert Ron Sterling, president, Sterling Solutions, Ltd., has included up-to-date information on this daily-changing topic of Health IT. A new chapter on EHR and malpractice risk has been added, as well as detailed coverage of conversion issues for practices that have an old EMR. Also, new additions on ARRA and meaningful use will help many medical practices evaluate whether an EHR investment makes sense.

Keys to EMR/EHR Success, Second Edition, starts with an overview of preparing the practice for technology. From there, Sterling helps the reader define requirements, choose the right system, get physician and staff buy-in, and take the system "live" as smoothly as possible. Sterling translates his experience into a step-by-step process any medical practice can follow with ease, from first considering an EHR, all the way through post-implementation training and updates.

"There is no question," says Sterling, "that the selection and implementation of an EHR is a 'bet-the-practice' proposition. If you fail, you end up with more costs and greater frustration. On the other hand, few practices will be able to avoid implementing EHRs. These tools become necessary to meet patient expectations, payer quality requirements and pay-for-performance demands."

Keys to EMR/EHR Success, Second Edition, provides a proven path medical practices can follow with ease, and the confidence they're making the right decisions about features, vendors, integration with the practice management system, and other critical factors.

The 1st Edition of Keys to EMR Success, published in 2008, was the HIMSS Book of the Year Award, and was selected because it, "comprehensively covers the selection and implementation of electronic medical records for the physician practice. The book contains solid advice, work lists, and other tools to help physicians and office managers succeed in leveraging EMRs to improve patient services and practice performance."
