Are You Outgrowing Your EMR? [Free 5 Question Assessment]

If you’re still using paper health records, go ahead and skip this assessment. The answer is: “You need to ditch the paper–it’s 2023, and there’s a better way!

But for the majority of modern healthcare practices, managing patient information takes place on a HIPAA-compliant electronic medical records (EMR) or electronic health records (EHR) system.

So, do you love your EMR? Do you hate it? Is it a complicated “on-again, off-again” situation?

Whatever your answer, it’s important to continually ask: “Are we truly getting the best from our current EMR system? Or are we making do?”

When Should You Consider Switching EMR Systems?

As with all technology, what may have worked wonders for you a few years ago might now be holding you back.

Here’s an all-too-common scenario: Your practice started small, and so did your documentation needs, compliance standards, and workflows. But as you added new specialties, expanded your patient base, and cut the ribbon on new locations, your once-beloved system’s “quirks” turned into major setbacks. 

We see these common signs all the time: practices that run up against compliance issues, use way too many manual ‘workarounds’, or miss out on opportunities to collect revenue.

For healthcare practices that are ready to rapidly scale operations, prepare for mergers or acquisitions, expand into new states, or seek investment capital, these aren’t just minor inconveniences. They’re major red flags.

Major Signs That You’re Outgrowing Your EMR

We get it. Changing such a foundational aspect of your daily workflows can be daunting. But let’s look at it another way.

Clinging to the familiar can often lead to higher costs in the long run. And we’re not just talking about lost revenue or declining reimbursements. Over time, the wrong EMR can lead to staff burnout, and, in turn, disrupt clinical outcomes and efficiency over time.

We developed this 5-question assessment based on the real-world situations that we hear in platform demos and conversations with rehabilitation industry leaders, all the time.
