Why Hire a Consultant?
The installation of an Electronic Health Record system within a practice is an infrequent event. Physicians and Practice Administrators are experts at running their practice and practicing medicine, but can’t possibly be experts at selecting and setting up an EHR—they typically don’t have the time and they just don’t do it often enough.
For a practice, the first EHR implementation is typically the most important, as it will require not only the installation of the EHR but significant changes to the organization and workflow of the office.
EHRs should not be selected by simply asking a colleague which system they have installed in their practice. Every practice has different needs and requirements, and features evolve and change quickly. A formal selection process should be undertaken to procure the system that best meets the needs of the practice and the delicate workflow that generates the profitable, quality care that the providers are comfortable with. MedCo Data has filed a patent on a unique process that is proven to match the identified workflow to the appropriate software. Once selected we use this personalized data to develop and manage an implementation strategy that is geared toward regaining your typical patient flow in the shortest possible timeframe.
MedCo Data works closely with many professional medical organizations who support the development and growth of particular specialties. We attend multiple association annual meetings, presenting as industry experts on the benefits and pitfalls of Electronic Health Records.
If you have never seen us in the vendor area or experts arena at an association that you belong to, please let us know which event and we'll try our best to register for the next available meeting. We are always looking for avenues to better serve the physicians we support.
