With hundreds of electronic medical record (EMR) choices on the market, it is challenging for physicians to find appropriate software for their practice. This guide can help ease this process by providing you with some basic information to look for when searching for suitable EMR software for your chiropractic practice.
In order to start on the right track of finding suitable EMR systems for your chiropractic practice, you should look for software that is designed specifically for chiropractors or a similar specialty. Chiropractic EMR software is customized to deal with the unique characteristics of treating neuromusculoskeletal ailments. Chiropractors often rely on imaging tests performed by other specialists, so your EMR should be compatible with a wide variety of image types from different imaging equipment and software. Likewise Chiropractic EMR software should integrate with x-ray, CT scan, or MRI equipment you have at your practice and be able to receive and analyze the large amounts of data that may be generated for each of your patients. To more effectively illustrate diagnoses and procedures to your patients, you should make sure your EMR choice has the capability of displaying ADAM images or other related diagrams.
