Other Specialty Practices
For the specialties that fall in the middle, such as Orthopedics or Pulmonology, it depends on specific practice. If the practice performs mostly specialty-specific tests or exams, a specialty EMR may be the best fit as it will have more functionality than a multi-specialty EMR. However, if your practice performs more general tests and exams that are similar to other specialties, then you may find a single specialty EMR too specific and would work better with a multi-specialty EMR.
Generally, single specialty EMR will fit your practice if it is a single specialty practice. However, you need to analyze the workflow of your practice to determine if a multi-specialty EHR would be better in your particular case. Ask other similar practices what type of EHR system they have implemented. Also, talk to EHR vendors to determine the functionality of their EHR systems and how it could benefit your practice.
