We wrote this eBook with the small doctor's office in mind, making it a quick read with all the vital information that a healthcare organization would need to purchase an EMR
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2007
EMR Experts, Inc. is excited to announce the completion of their free eBook, titled "Electronic Medical Records eBook." The 48 page eBook is designed to help healthcare organizations learn more about the concept of electronic medical records (EMR) and educate them on how to purchase and implement an EMR. There is valuable information such as a chapter on how to plan for purchasing an EMR including a tutorial for conducting return-on-investment and cost-benefit analysis studies. It includes special focus on the implementation phase, going into detail on how to select the right hardware for the project and implement a quality network. You will also find an up-to-date list of electronic medical record software vendors, a glossary of healthcare IT terms and a list of additional resources, all designed to help healthcare organizations become better buyers of healthcare IT.
The process of planning, purchasing and implementing an EMR can be a daunting undertaking for most healthcare organizations. While large-sized healthcare organizations, such as hospitals have the luxury of having an in-house IT department to help them with the selection and implementation of an EMR system; small to medium-sized organizations usually do not and are faced with the challenge of navigating through this endeavor on their own. This is one of the reasons why EMR adoption in small private practices is so much lower than in hospitals. Lack of information on the topic of electronic medical records can also be contributed to the low user adoption rate. "We wrote this eBook with the small doctor's office in mind, making it a quick read with all the vital information that a healthcare organization would need to purchase an EMR", says John Deutsch, Chief Marketing Officer at EMR Experts, Inc.
