From cutting costs to making "greener" facilities, going paperless has many advantages. However, migrating to an electronic medical records (EMR) system presents a range of challenges; your staff may need help to ensure the facility runs smoothly during the transition.

Former National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, Dr. Frazad Mostashari, believes the key to setting up a successful EMR system in a healthcare facility lies in the ability to effectively manage proper hands-on care and attention during the implementation process. So far, this process has been successful. Just four years ago, 93 percent of prescriptions were drafted on paper. Now fewer than half are, as EMR systems are capable of delivering electronic prescriptions in addition to patient immunization history and allergies, as well as problems and diagnoses. With EMR systems controlling how medical information is distributed, your healthcare facility can’t risk falling behind.
