With so many electronic medical records (EMR) systems available in the healthcare market, it can be hard for urgent care physician owner/operators to pick just one. By analyzing different attributes specific to urgent care, you can narrow down your choices and make sure that you go with the best fit for your practice.
Renee Vandall, Director of Marketing for Net Health, says that proper documentation is an important aspect to look for in urgent care EMRs.
“You should look for an EMR that allows you to chart fast and code appropriately,” Vandall says. “An EMR should also be able to recognize missing information from a patient’s chart, so that when charts are audited in the back end of being paid, all of the correct documentation is captured so that providers receive appropriate reimbursement.”
