Specialty EHRs: Why You Shouldn’t Settle for Anything Else
Posted by Paolo Gabriel Demillo
How many times have you found yourself wanting more from your EHR software? Many providers often complain that their unintuitive system contributes more to physician burnout instead of making their lives easier.
Numerous workflows within a practice’s operations are specialty-specific. For example, immunizations for allergists, weight-based medication dosing for pediatrics, or prenatal flowsheets for OB/GYNs. You can never find these kinds of features and functionalities in generic systems, and in the rare cases that you do, they’re almost always inadequate.
That’s why specialists and specialty practices need a specialty EHR with built-in tools designed specifically for your area of expertise.
Why a Specialty EHR?
Each practice has distinct needs and requirements that may not apply to others. Depending on your practice’s size, location, patient demographics, and specialty, you could face different challenges that generic EHRs cannot address.
Specialty EHRs and EMRs, like Meditab’s Intelligent Medical Software (IMS), is built from the ground up with your specialty in mind.
