5. EHR selection and implementation
EHRs are clearly a focal point of a practice's technology. Good technology partners will work with you to select the best possible solution based on your needs and workflow.
After you reach that decision, an EHR system needs to be implemented. Often, EHR vendors can provide capable implementation services (including migration from another EHR system, if needed). At a minimum, though, your technology partner should be guiding this process and managing communications with the vendor.
It's essential to understand that the reporting features of your EHR system are the key management area for your meaningful use compliance.
