Specialty care has unique needs for EHR clinical documentation and care coordination with other specialties, subspecialties, primary care and care settings. Historically, very few specialists have adopted an EHR. In recent years, many EHR vendors have developed specialty templates or modules optimized for specific specialties. EHR solutions for individual specialties (e.g. ophthalmology, dermatology) or multi-specialty groups are also evolving and gaining adoption in certain specialties.
This section of the Playbook provides EHR, health information exchange, and workflow tools and guidance for specialists. Currently, this section provides access to federally funded efforts to compile case studies and best practices.
