EMR and EHR sponsor, gMed, has recently put out a new whitepaper called An Integrated Approach: Building profits by integrating your GI practice. I’ve always thought that specialty specific features like the surgery center software that gMed offers are a big reason why specialty specific EHR vendors are so popular. This whitepaper makes a good case for why an integrated software package is an advantage for a GI practice.
Below are the two “money” graphics from the whitepaper, but the whitepaper has some lists of benefits and challenges that are well worth considering as well. Not to mention a case study from an actual GI practice.
What do you think of the integrated versus not integrated approaches that are presented? Are there some things that gMed isn’t covering that are worth considering?
