What's the Best Electronic Health Record (EHR) for My Practice?

What is the best electronic health record (EHR) or electronic medical record (EMR) for your clinical practice? Can you confidently answer that question? Which vendor will you choose? Nextgen? GE Centricity? Allscripts? Epic? Cerner? eClinicalWorks? e-MDs? MedPlexus? McKesson? Hopefully you're only considering EHRs that are Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology or CCHIT certified. ASP of server-based?

Maybe you're even considering some free EMR options like Practice Fusion. How do you plan to make your decision? Do you feel like you could make an informed, educated decision about EHR selection? When you start adding billing and other practice management capabilites. Have you considered e-Prescribing? What if you're a cardiology or oncology practice? Do you know what type of subspecialty solutions are available? I feel like there are so many questions that need to be answered for hospitals and clinicians who are looking for an EHR solution.
