Bridging the gap…between the business of medicine and the practice of medicine.

Jan / Feb 2006: Technology In Practice

Technology In Practice

The majority of medical group practices in the U.S. currently do not use electronic health records (EHR), according to data from the Medical Group Management Association. But EHRs offer significant benefits to medical practices and to the healthcare system as a whole.

Practices need to decide whether the advantages of an electronic records system outweigh the cost in dollars, time and administrative disruption.

This issue of Doctor’s Digest offers information and advice to help physicians and practice administrators make that determination.
