Patient Loyalty, EHR Adoption, and EMR vs. EHR

This is interesting to consider. I’m really not sure how you can measure this result. I think this will eventually be true, but I don’t think we’re there yet. In theory everyone wants their doctor to have an EMR. However, they really just want more services for themselves as patients. That’s very different from what an EMR provides today.

My we’ve come a long ways. Now we’ll see how many organizations end up switching EHR software because they rushed their EHR implementation.

I prefer EMR and I think most doctors do as well. Although, $36 billion has a way of changing things.
