If you have any experience with the cost of owning an EHR you know there is more to the equation than just buying the software and turning on your computer. With tens of thousands of ARRA federal dollars in play, doctors everywhere are scrambling to get a piece of the action.
But, if you want to play the EMR game right, you have to know what you're getting yourself into. I've heard too many stories from local docs about the shock of ongoing expenses in their EHR decision. They wish they had the tools to help make sense of it all before signing on the dotted line.
The Happy Hospitalist and the EHR experts at Software Advice have teamed up to bring you an EHR cost comparison tool. With this Microsoft Excel formatted tool, you'll be able to calculate and compare up to five different EHR products for up-front and ongoing yearly costs of ownership up to seven years out. I can't even think past next week. This is a must have apples-to-apples comparison tool. And it's free for you to explore.
