Technology can make some processes more streamlined (e.g., billing and accessing patient historic data), and it can also make certain processes more cumbersome (e.g., documenting a multifaceted patient visit). Deciding to use an electronic health record (EHR) in the clinic setting can be a challenging conclusion for physicians. Pressures from government and regulatory agencies continue to grow as technology becomes an increasingly important element of providing safe, high quality patient care. EHR selection and purchase will guide physicians and their teams through the process of choosing which EHR will work best for their practice and patient needs.
