Your Guide in Choosing the Right Pain Management EMR Software

Posted by on

Physicians can find it difficult to choose the right EMR program for their practice due to the large number of options available. That’s why knowing what features and tools you need are important when selecting a pain treatment EMR. Fortunately, there are specialty-specific EMRs and providers that can help tailor the software for your unique needs.  


Guide for Choosing the Best Pain Management EMR Software

The following criteria can help you assess prospective pain management EMRs at the start of your software evaluation process:

1. Practice Size

EMR software functions best depending on what it’s made for, either for small or bigger practices. Keep in mind to evaluate the software’s scalability according to the number and type of users. Be sure the software you use is suitable for the number of pain control doctors in your specialty.

2. Certification

Make sure the pain management EMR has been evaluated and certified by an ONC-Authorized Testing and Certification Body (“ONC-ATCB”) before purchasing it. The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) is in charge of developing EMR certification requirements and approving vendor EMR devices. Your EMR would be approved by the ONC-ATCB if it meets the necessary Meaningful Use (“MU”) goals and steps. This is required in order to qualify for MU Medicaid (up to $63,750) and Medicare (up to $44,000) benefits for using an EMR and avoid fines for not using one. 

3. Data Storage

Cloud-based and server-based EMR software have their advantages and disadvantages but one should perfectly fit your needs. If you prefer in-house data storage, then you’ll be investing a lot more in your software and hardware updates and maintenance. For cloud-based storage, you’ll rely greatly on your internet connection speed and consistency, but it works best with collaborative care. 


3 Must-Have Features for Your Pain Management EMR

1. Special Forms and Templates

To save yourself from countless hours of data entry, you need a pain management EMR that enables you to customize templates and forms. The 1st Providers Choice’s Pain Management EMR software offers a tighter integration so you can spend more time focusing on your patients and less time with data entry. You’ll be able to enjoy the following:


  • Intuitive visit notes
  • Custom charting needs
  • Create your own templates
  • Increased efficiency
  • Enhanced patient care

2. Prescription Management

Our electronic prescribing feature is intended to comply with federal regulations while also enhancing prescription management. Electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) increases patient safety, prevents drug fraud and violence, and is more reliable and effective than paper prescriptions when it comes to controlled substances. The e-prescribing feature of the Pain Management EMR from 1st Providers Choice was built to meet regulatory standards for electronic prescribing of controlled substances. Our software improves drug monitoring and medication compliance, improves patient convenience, and leads to improved health outcomes.


3. Patient Dashboard

A Patient Dashboard offers a summary of all patient information stored within the EMR. Here, pain management specialists can view data such as demographics, problems, medications, and more. You’ll be able to enjoy the following:

  • Eliminate paper-based processes
  • User-friendly interface
  • Improved care collaboration 
  • Increased staff productivity
  • Meet HIPAA standards
