FAQs About EHR Consulting Solutions

The complexity of the hospital infrastructure primarily dictates the timeline to implement an EHR system. Most medical bodies can expect a timeline between several months to a couple of years.

Cost varies by hospital size, complexity, and many other factors.

The most used EHR across the United States is Epic Systems Corporation. Epic also maintains a high customer retention benchmark with the average customer using the software for a period of ten years or more.

Epic has grown into one of the most commonly used EHR systems in the nation. Today, nearly one third of all US-based in-patient implementation systems are managed with support from Epic.

The three leading EHR systems in the United States are Epic, Cerner, and MEDITECH. Collectively, these three systems account for over 70 percent of the national EHR market.

An EMR is a digitized version of a patient’s medical chart that contains the patient’s medical and treatment history. An EHR includes all the information in an EMR, but an EHR enables hospitals to connect with laboratories and other specialists to paint a broader picture of the patient’s entire medical history.

Hospitals are the primary users of EHR software. In most cases, EHRs are used to improve the quality of patient care, monitor the health and safety of patients, and evaluate the performance of the entire medical staff at the hospital.

The Secretary of Health and Human Services has a detailed checklist of requirements that an EHR must comply with to become fully certified. Those requirements involve technological, functional, and security benchmarks that evaluate an EHR’s certifiability.
