Implementing an electronic medical record system is an important step, but it is learning how to use it that really matters. In fact, investing in proper training for doctors and staff will pay off immediately, as an understanding and familiarity of the EMR will help ease the anxiety that comes with implementing a new system. Training can also lead to cost saving benefits for your practice and improvements in quality of care.
Why Training Matters
Healthcare providers who choose to skip the training phase and learn as they go tend to be less productive and not as satisfied with their EMR. Their learning curve is also much lower than for doctors who master the basics before using the software in a live environment. This is due to the fact that learning how to use basic functions gives physicians a strong foundation and allows them to better understand other complex applications and functionalities found within the EMR.
