How to Choose an EHR System

Choosing an EHR system for your practice can be very difficult. There are hundreds of certified EHR technologies available on the market, and almost as many software vendors marketing them.

As described in The HITECH Act Made Easy, the easiest way to begin narrowing down the field of EHR candidates is by deciding between the "client-server" and "web-based" software models. The advantages of each type are distinct and meaningful, so for most practices this is a pleasantly straightforward process.
