Healthcare professionals often hear that no two patients are alike, and the same could be said about physicians. However, while it is true that many doctors work and chart differently, those practicing medicine within the same field are bound to have many things in common. As a result, the specialty-specific EMR you choose for your practice should allow you to customize different aspects to meet your specific charting needs.
Cut down on training time and reduce the learning curve.
Instead of having to go through a cumbersome training process to customize the EMR software to your field, specialty-specific EMR software is set up for doctors to jump in and drive. “A lot of doctors purchase EMR software and still don’t know how to use it months down the road,” says Jason Keele, CEO of 1st Providers Choice. By simplifying the process, however, doctors are less hesitant to implement the system and use it with live patients. Since doctors are already familiar with the content and don’t have to build templates from scratch, the training process focuses primarily on getting providers and staff comfortable with the software.
