AMA Offers EHR Guidance
Considering recent legislation (H.R. 6357) approved by the House Energy and Commerce Committee to promote faster adoption of electronic health records (EHRs), it’s probably a good idea to seriously consider how your practice will implement an EHR system. If you’re not sure where to begin, head over to the American Medical Association (AMA) Web site.
The AMA has created an educational resource “15 questions to ask before signing an electronic medical record or electronic health record agreement” to help you assess your practice’s needs and determine which vendor best meets those needs.
