Default E-Medical Records

I need a little help. My daughter is about to open her Family Medicine Practice in about 10 months. I need some of you nurses who work with or work with people who work with E-Medical Records to give me some pros, cons, and the type of E-Medical Records you like the best. Office Managers are the ones I assume use these things the most, and I am completely ignorant about them. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

The practice that is part of our hospital uses a program called "eClinical Works". And the docs and nurses use it, as well as receptionists, billing, appointment desk, etc.
With EMR none of the providers write anything anymore. All charting is done on laptops that they carry from patient to patient. Even scripts are done on the lap top and automatically faxed to the patient's pharmacy. I've heard pros and cons from the providers, the nurses, and even the MIS department. Two other systems that were tossed around before they bought this one were "McKesson" and "Mysis". All 3 names can be googled for their websites. Some times senior management around here doesn't always think things through. We in home health have been using the Mysis home care for over two years. The management and docs picked eClinical for the medical practice offices. These two programs do not, will not, and can not communicate with each other. So that sometimes means double charting for the poor home health nurses. LIKE ME!!!!!! LOL Hope this helps a little. Best of luck to your daughter opening her own practice. How exciting!!!

Thanks for the input Stella. The whole thing is so confusing. I'm told it's best to start with E-medical records from the get go that way you don't have to transfer any existing records.

I have to admit, it sounds like the way to go; but to be able to interface with home health and nursing home patients would be a totally incredible assesst as well. I guess a little more research is in order.

If you, or any of the rest of you have any more input, I'd love to hear about it.

Thanks again.
