EHRs: Overcoming the Challenges
Working With EHRs and Reporting Data

Electronic health records (EHRs) have changed the medical world, and the vast majority of physicians use them. But physicians have many questions about how to integrate them into patient care workflow without creating problems.

This course covers:

  • Why so many physicians have problems with EHRs, and how to deal with the impact of EHRs on patient relationships
  • How to choose between cloud-based versus in-house EHRs
  • Current government requirements for using EHRs; and meaningful use, which drove EHR use for years but is being replaced and adapted into new programs and requirements
  • Interoperability (EHRs communicating with other offices and healthcare institutions) and its impact on your practice
