Case Study

What You Need To Know In Replacing An EHR

Source: Greenway Health

This mixed white paper and case study from Coker Consulting, LLC, d.b.a, Coker Group (“Coker”) performed at the request of Greenway Medical Technologies provides an independent in-depth analysis of how Greenway’s services, solutions, and technology are helping medical practices undergo EMR-to-EHR conversions. It discusses the emerging trends within the second-generation electronic health record (EHR) buyer market, reasons why organizations are replacing their systems, considerations for when and how to replace an existing electronic medical record (EMR) system, and best practices for evaluating and selecting a trust EHR partner.

The case study component takes a look at the real-world transition store of Genesis OB/GYN, PC. It includes interviews with staff members showing the challenges faced as the practice expanded while having two separate EMRs and practice management (PM) systems.

This paper notes, “A not-so-well-known (or less-publicized) statistic is the number of unhappy EHR users that is driving a new market, frequently referred to as “EMR or EHR replacement” sales. According to KLAS Enterprises LLC, an independent health information technology research firm, half of EHR systems sold to physician practices today are now EHR system replacements, up from 30% last year.”
