5 Questions to Consider Before Replacing EHR Systems

Here are five questions organizations should ask themselves before committing to the upheaval of replacing their electronic health record systems, according to an EHR Intelligence report.

1. What are your goals, and how is your current EHR preventing you from reaching them?

2. How has your EHR affected your physicians' productivity and workflow?

3. Is your vendor responsive to your needs? Is the business stable, or are you being phased out?

4. Are there penalties for breaking a contract? Is it worth it?

5. Are your expectations reasonable?

It is important for organizations to take a look at their practices, see what problems can be fixed and only then consider replacing EHR systems, according to the report.
