New EMR and HIPAA Blog Pages

You may notice on the right a list of new pages that I just started to create. The idea is to create a resource for those interested in evaluating EMR as an alternative, purchasing an EMR or implementing the EMR. Right now the pages are quite empty, but I’m hoping to solicit my readers help. So, just comment on this post or email me directly to let me know what you think about the following topics:

EMR vs. Paper Charts
EMR Evaluating and Purchasing
EMR Features
EMR Implementation Ideas

Ok, so I’m focusing a lot of effort on EMR still. I hope to change that in the future and have a few more HIPAA related items, but EMR is my main interest for now. HIPAA has a strong tie with EMR since your EMR MUST be HIPAA compliant. In fact, that brings up a nice idea for another future page “HIPAA Compliant EMRs” Are they really HIPAA compliant?

Don’t by shy now! Just click the comment button and start letting me know what you think.
