Preparing to adopt and implement an EHR in your practice

Since I'm getting ready to attend the 2010 ACPE (American College of Physician Executives) Annual Meeting this weekend, I thought I would share an article from the Physician Executive Journal. (by the way, I'll be attending ACPE and I plan to publish highlights from the meeting on, so I hope you'll follow those blog posts)

The article is titled, "Preparing Your Practice for the Adoption and Implementation of Electronic Health Records." The authors are John Kralewski, PhD, Bryan E. Dowd, PhD, Therese Zink, MD, MPH and David N. Gans, MSHA, FACMPE. Learn how medical group practices can reduce the human and economic costs associated with electronic health records.

So many physicians and medical groups are getting ready to adopt and implement electronic health records. Do they know how to modify their clinical workflow to maximize efficiency? How about the selection of an EHR? Which EHR is the "best" one for your practice? There are so many unanswered questions regarding the economics behind EHRs, e-prescribing, billing,  practice management, etc.  I'd encourage you to read this article and leverage resources that are out there to help you make an informed decision about EHRs for your practice.
