EHR implementation is a process (strategies and steps) that takes time, patience, and commitment to reach a successful outcome. Poor planning, poor communication, and insufficient training will lead to undesirable results if you set unrealistic expectations and close communications with your staff.
Ransomware reached a crisis level in 2019, according to Emsisoft, and Forescout recently predicted an increase in cyber attacks. The American Medical Collection Agency data breach impacted more than 25 million patients, leading to numerous investigations and lawsuits.
Every day your eye care practice faces challenges. Billing issues, patient communication problems, and server crashes all add up to one thing—wasted time. Inefficiencies create chaos in the office, negatively affect patients, and directly impact your bottom line. You need ophthalmology and optometry EHR software to solve these problems and save you money.
Why have so many eye care professionals adopted optometry EHR software? Because optometry practice management and EHR software have the power to transform the patient care experience. EHR software can also lower your productivity or frustrate you to no end if you choose an inefficient product.
Providing great patient care is the mission of your eye care practice. However, your optometry and ophthalmology practice is also a business—and you need to keep that business alive by achieving revenue goals. Heard of EHR data mining? It’s a term worth knowing if you want to grow your eye care business.
So, you don’t trust the cloud? Moving your EHR system to the cloud from a local server is an important decision, and we understand the uncertainty that follows. However, there are many benefits that happen when you migrate to ophthalmology or optometry cloud-hosted or cloud-based EHR software that you may not know about.
Now that you’ve decided to add a practice management and EHR system in your optometry or ophthalmology practice, don’t forget to focus on one of the most important requirements for a successful outcome—selecting and managing your EHR implementation project team.
