Electronic Medical Records
Choosing the right electronic medical record system is a vital decision that will impact the growth and sustainability of your company. The wrong choice can create years of frustration and financial stress. Ensure that you are completely informed by asking yourself these important questions before making a final decision:
Does the software for your company’s needs?
Most of the off-the-shelf medical software solutions will provide a narrow scope of features. Often these solutions are designed with one area of practice in mind and are then generalized for sale to a broad audience. This can lead to missing or limited options that your company requires to do business.
On the other side of the spectrum, some vendors will provide a broad scope of features. This software is typically designed to meet the needs of many different areas of practice. In order to create software to meet the needs of such a wide audience the software features can grow exponentially until the point where software is difficult to learn and use on a daily basis.
Is the software your looking for usable?
One thing that is easy to overlook is the day to day usability of the software. Integrating an EMR system into your company’s daily routine can add significant overhead if the software is not easy to use. Great medical software is straight forward to use, minimizes the keystrokes required for repetitive tasks, limits the overhead and provides simple, but exceptional reporting.
SageKey has over a decade of experience developing medical software that fits all of these needs. We understand what it takes to provide a solution that fits seamlessly with a company’s current business practices, and we are not satisfied until your expectations are exceeded.
Can the software be customizable to the project needs?
If you are leaning towards using an off-the-shelf solution, make sure you research the customization options. In many cases off-the-shelf solutions will meet the majority of your needs, but they often fall short in areas that are crucial to your business. If the software provider is not willing or able to customize their system to integrate with your system, you could be stuck with software that creates more work rather than making the job simpler and easier.
One of the biggest advantages to creating a custom solution is that it will fit your specific requirements. You do not have to adjust your practice to fit another company’s vision of how your business should be run. You do not need to work with multiple software packages to meet business needs. You do not need to worry about costly duplication of work. By working with SageKey, you can rest assured that your software is exactly what you need.
