2K Electronic Medical Records is a leading provider of electronic medical software for physicians and medical billing services.
Tammy Harrison, President of 2K Electronic Medical Records said, ?Looking back at 2005 with President Bush?s request to have all medical records be electronic within the next 10 years, the national disasters -- like hurricane Katrina our country has experienced, we felt examining the EMR process would help practioner?s and medical billing specialists make an informed decision that is right for them.?
Ms. Harrison said, ?Many practices begin to re-evaluate their business processes when they implement EMR software. Existing office procedures, patient safety and satisfaction, as well as cost effectiveness are all important factors.?
Here are some questions she advises those evaluating EMR ask before purchasing software:
1. What goals do you expect to achieve?
2. What basic features does your practice need?
3. How will you enter old data into the system?
4. What is your budget?
5. Who in the office will assist with implementation?
