Tips on EMR Software Selection

Listed below are some criteria that every small physician practice must address when selecting an EHR vendor.

  1. Practices need to ensure that they understand all of the costs associated with the EHR including training, implementation assistance, annual maintenance and support and that the total cost of ownership is affordable.
  2. The EHR must be flexible and allow the practice to operate as a standalone solution, integrate with a practice management solution, or even work with an outsourced billing company.
  3. Seek a stable EHR vendor that constantly attracts new users and can provide proof of recent and ongoing enhancements or improvements.
  4. EHR Usability should play an important role in final EHR selection as small practices cannot afford a decrease in productivity due to poor EHR design.
  5. EHR must be customizable for your chosen specialty workflow such that it provides efficiency without straitjacketing the medical professional into a script that sounds completely unnatural and ill-suited for your specialty.
  6. Selected EHR must connect providers to updated clinical guidelines, protocols, and pay-for-performance best practices.
  7. EHR must be based on cloud-based technology (i.e., software-as-a-service-type implementation) which not only minimizes upfront costs of hardware and licenses, but it will allow for easier electronic exchanges of information with labs, pharmacies, and other entities.
  8. Practices need excellent online help, teaching materials, and a friendly customer service team that responds efficiently.

Cloud-based EHR Software vs. Server-based EHR Software

You will need to understand the differences between web based EHR (a.k.a. Cloud based EHR) and server-based EMR to determine what will best work for your practice. There are advantages and disadvantages associated with each type of implementation and it makes sense to review the same before narrowing down on your final choice. There are also significant cost differences as well between the two.

Also known as web-based EMR systems, a cloud-based EHR operates with data and functionality housed on a third-party server. Software is purchased as a service and is either partially loaded onto practice computers or accessed completely via web portals. Cloud-based EHRs have a number of benefits for small medical practices.

A server-based EHR system stores all data and most functionality in house, which means you'll need servers onsite. A server-based system requires medical practices to purchase hardware, including servers, as well as software that has to be installed onsite.

EHR Pricing - What you should expect to pay?

The cost of purchasing and installing an electronic health record (EHR) has been estimated by several studies to range from $15,000 to $70,000 per provider. Costs vary depending on whether you implement server based EHR (on-site EHR deployment) or web-based EHR. Web-based EHR deployment, known as Software as a Service (SaaS), typically requires providers to pay a fixed monthly subscription cost. On-site deployment often requires providers to pay for ongoing costs to support and manage on-site data servers.

The following chart from the Michigan Center for Effective IT Adoption provides estimated average upfront cost, yearly cost, and five year total cost of ownership (TCO) for on-site and SaaS EHR deployment.

 
Cost In-Office (Server-based) SaaS
Upfront Cost Yearly Cost 5 Year TCO Upfront Cost Yearly Cost 5 Year TCO
Estimated Average Cost $33,000 $4,000 $48,000 $26,000 $8,000 $58,000
