In moving to EHR, good training and a well-paced adaptation period can ease the transition. Free training is available from your vendor–and supplemental training may be worth the added expense.
Transitioning to electronic health records is not a simple intuitive process. Even the most user-friendly systems require training and practice. If you neglect to adequately prepare yourself and your staff for the transition to EHR, you won’t be able to use the system to its full potential. There will be functions the system has that you won’t know how to tap into, and you probably will make mistakes when inputting patient data. These mistakes could lead to the system not being able to provide you with the information you need to provide superior care, meaning you may not be able to easily access the patient’s medical history and past product preferences, among other data. Here is how my practice trained and practiced for the implementation of Eyefinity Practice Management, OfficeMate Edition and Eyefinity EHR, ExamWRITER Edition.

When the staff and doctors at Insight Eye Care decided it was time to integrate electronic health records into their three offices, they formed a committee of doctors and employees to study the options. “We had been an OfficeMate® user forever, so ExamWRITER® was the logical choice,” says Dr. Burt Dubow, yet he wanted the committee to analyze multiple systems thoroughly to find which option was best for their offices.
At several local Vision Source quarterly meetings, the committee had a chance to work in person with multiple systems, and, in the end, landed back where they started with ExamWRITER. Why was ExamWRITER the right match? “There were a lot of factors—the ease of customizing it for our practice needs, the quality of training and back-up support and the stability and longevity of the company,” Dr. Dubow says. “We wanted to make sure whomever we chose would be able to serve us for many years.”
