Introduction
The idea of EMR was first introduce in the 1960’s when Gary Weed conceptualized the Problem Oriented Medical record as a way of documenting patient encounters. The first medical records system was introduced in 1972 at the Regenstreif Institute. Today is it estimated that only 20% of large clinics and hospitals have gore electronic and even fewer, 5%, of the small clinics have converted. The time has come for us to be part of the rapidly growing movement that is going to revolutionize healthcare and health information management. (1) According to capterra.com (2) the five most popular EMR systems are eClinicalWorks, McKesson, Cerner, Allscripts, and AthenaHealth. The top five systems by number of users are eClinicalWorks 370,000, Epic 230,000, McKesson 200,000, Care360 165,000, and Allscripts 160,000. I took each of these companies into consideration but after concluding my research I felt that they were not exactly what our clinic is looking for. I am recommending three different vendors; Universal EMR Solutions, SuiteMed and Integrated Systems Management, Inc. Each of these vendors offer systems that meet “meaningful use” guidelines and are all fully CCHIT certified. On the following pages you will find information about each vendor including a product overview, system features and certifications.
