You need to ask these important questions before choosing an EHR

Posted by Adele Field on Mar 7, 2018 3:20:41 PM

ALL EHRs are not created equal. EHR usability directly impacts the burden of documentation.

The leading EHRs securely manage patient health information, but the way they do this can be vastly different. When clinical documentation is a source of frustration for doctors, there is a mismatch between their preferred documentation workflow and the EHR user interface. In fact, a top cause of physician dissatisfaction with their EHRs is spending too much time on tedious data entry tasks. EHR usability should be a primary consideration because it can alleviate -- or conversely, increase -- the burden of documentation.

Here are five critical questions to ask when evaluating the usability of an EHR.

6 Critical Considerations for Choosing an EHR

Posted by Adele Field on Mar 7, 2018 3:00:59 PM

By Adele Field, ZyDoc Marketing & Communications Director

Which EHR Should You Choose?

1. Is your practice ready to adopt a new workflow?

Do your research to learn how closely the proposed new EHR’s workflow will approximate your current (legacy) methods of handling PHI. If the new workflow logic will force a radically different approach to entering, organizing, and accessing patient health records, there will be a difficult period of adjustment for your physicians and staff. EHR usability is a hot-button issue, with many vendors falling short. Poor usability will cause significant frustration and inefficiency for your EHR users. If the user interface feels very difficult or will require significantly more staff resources than available, look for another EHR. Charting in an EHR requires a constant flow of data in and data out, a process that can take up to 2 hours per patient visit. An interface that is not user-friendly can make this process onerous. On the other hand, if the interface is generally user-friendly, it may be a good choice for your practice.

Make a list of what you want the EHR to do, and compare features between several different systems.

Pitfalls of Copying and Pasting into an EHR

Posted by Adele on Feb 2, 2017 3:23:16 PM

Copy/pasting is used by many practices to save time, but it is not a "Do-It-Yourself" type of task... unless you have the time to check the work carefully.

  • Doctors don't.
  • Probably no one in your practice has the time nor focus to do it right, all day every day!

Copy/pasting is not actually a time-saver.

And, it has other pitfalls

At ZyDoc, we type, check, and double check all day long, every day. It's our business, and we do it very well.

  • ZyDoc transcriptionists and medical language specialists are fast, efficient, accurate medical documentation experts.
  • ZyDoc enables population of your EHR with narrative free text plus the structured data required for billing and reporting requirements, in a fraction of the time compared to typing, pointing and clicking, and copy-pasting.

Time for a change?
