Changing to a new EHR system is becoming a more common choice, but is it always the right one? Beyond the question of whether a new system will deliver actual improvements, practice leaders must consider two other key factors – cost and time – before making a switch. Moving to a new EHR system may be far more expensive than optimizing your current system, and finding and implementing a suitable vendor may take up to 2 years. Instead of investing time and money in a new EHR system that may or may not offer better performance, organizations should make sure that they maximize the value of their current system. This session will provide guidance on determining whether optimizing an existing EHR or pursuing a replacement system is right for your practice.
