The choice of system and installation of the EMR (Electronic Medical Record) in every healthcare facility isn’t a matter of “if,” it is a matter of “when.” At some point, every medical practice in the United States will be faced with the decision to go to an electronic medical record system to enhance efficiencies, increase clinical quality and improve financial performance in the practice.

According to Jeffery Daigrepont, Principal at The Coker Group of Atlanta, GA and Editor of The Complete EMR Selection Guide, “Implementing an EMR is a challenge for any size organization. Deciding what vendor and system to purchase can be an overwhelming task. Risks are high, investment of time and money are high, and success with the EMR can be challenging and time consuming. In some cases, making the right EMR selection can be career-defining for a physician, office administrator or business manager.”

“President Bush announced during his State of the Union address that the US will make wider use of electronic records and Health Information Technology, to help control costs and reduce medical errors,” Daigrepont explained. “The Bush Administration has been pushing for the adoption of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) since the Executive Order issued on April 27, 2004 which called for widespread deployment of EMR implementation within the next decade to help realize substantial improvements in patient safety and efficiency,” he added.

Nancy Collins, President of Greenbranch Publishing and Publisher of The Journal of Medical Practice Management agrees. “We are delighted to partner with The Coker Group on this important and timely publication. Executives in medical practices need a roadmap to clearly define the practice goals for EMR.” Collins stated.

The research guide is 80 pages filled with no-nonsense, practical advice – supported by field-tested examples from practices that have gone through the process. Topics include:

• How to Prepare Your Practice for an EMR
• Step-by-Step Instructions for Developing your RFP

• How to Pay for the New Technology?
