Abstract

Electronic health records enable physicians to keep more detailed and legible records and, potentially, to improve patient care. Before committing to a system, it is essential to screen the software company, make sure the electronic health record integrates with the practice manager component, decide on client server- versus Internet-based model, and make sure that the software has the capability of fulfilling meaningful use criteria. Just as important, the physician must go through a demonstration walk through in a thoughtful, detail-oriented manner.
