Electronic Medical Records and Electronic Health Charts
Many providers find the task of researching, comparing and selecting the best documentation system challenging enough. There is added pressure to go paper-less from government and peers. Some providers end up trying to interface their existing legacy practice management or billing or scheduling system with a newer documentation system. There are pros and cons to this approach.
