Read the Signs: It's time for a New EHR

Posted by Patrick Stevenson on Tue, Apr 29, 2014 @ 04:35 PM

As many of you might have noticed in the news lately, there has been a lot of talk about physicians and their satisfaction with electronic health records (EHRs). Numerous articles and surveys pop up every day discussing the overall happiness level of practices and providers who have implemented an EHR in their office. Obviously, it’s a rich topic. In fact, I recently came across a blog post about the “7 signs it’s time to switch EHRs.” http://www.physicianspractice.com/blog/seven-signs-its-time-switch-ehrs. I think those are great points, and I want to explain why Hello Health might be your best option if you are switching. And, if you don’t currently have an EHR, this might help you make the right decision the first time.
