Which electronic health record (EHR) system should I purchase?

The good news is that there are plenty of options. In fact, there are over 440 complete Certified EHR products for the ambulatory market. Consequently, the selection process can take time. The Regional Extension Centers (RECs) have found it helps to narrow your options by answering three essential questions:

  • Do you want an internet-based or a server-based electronic health record (EHR)?
  • Do you want to purchase the EHR offered by your practice management system?
  • What is your budget?

Once you have the field narrowed down, contact your local REC for additional guidance.
