In my business plan I made a short list of benefits that can come from implementing an EMR.
Avoid Medical Mistakes there have been 44,000-98,000 deaths due to medical errors
Reduce Costs An EMR significantly reduces and often eliminates transcription and medical records costs
Increases Revenue Complete and proper documentation with an EMR can allow doctors to charge insurance companies a higher rate while avoiding liability
Precise Medical Record An EMR makes a record more legible, accessible and consistent
Meet Standards An EMR is required for some accreditation standards and helps meet legal and regulatory requirements
Improve Efficiency Being able to share and access patient data quickly from any location improves the clinical workflow and efficiency
I thought this was a pretty succinct way to describe the benefits of EMR implementation.
