Interest in EMR Explodes!

That's right, you heard me! EMR and health care IT use has more than doubled in five years, a new American College of Physician Executives survey says. According to a core group of 10,000 ACPE members, use of electronic medical records has skyrocketed from 33.1% to 64.5%, and only 5.9% of participants said they were not preparing for future implementation.

For those who had not yet adopted EMR or were reluctant to begin planning, "cost" was cited as the primary concern. Indeed, physicians and their practice teams can become overwhelmed if they consider EMR systems as being revenue-negative.

In response, IO Practiceware hopes you will read this recent post on EMR cost vs. EMR value.

And then we hope you will join us in the EMR revolution!
