THE EHR UNDERDOGS OF 2019
EHR vendors with better business practices than yours
The electronic health record (EHR) industry in the USA has often been accused of bad business practices and poor customer service. These are two of the primary reasons why many physicians are still dissatisfied with EHR technology.
According to a survey conducted by Stanford University in 2018, 6 out of 10 physicians (59%) think EHRs need a complete overhaul. Of those that do see some utility in them, they view them as a data storage repository rather than a powerful clinical tool that would help deliver better care.
