PHOENIX, Md., May 19 Greenbranch Publishing announces the Second Edition of the breakthrough book for practices eager to minimize the costs, confusion and outright risks of choosing and implementing an Electronic Medical Record system. Keys to EMR/EHR Success: Selecting and Implementing an Electronic Medical Record, 2nd Edition by Ronald Sterling, CPA, MBA, paperback, 304 pages, ISBN: 978-0-9827055-0-6, list price - $139.00
The 1st Edition of Keys to EMR Success, was the HIMSS Book of the Year Award winner. In this revised Edition, nationally recognized expert Ron Sterling has included new chapters on EHR and Malpractice Risk, ARRA and Meaningful Use as well as detailed coverage of conversion issues for practices that have an old EMR.
"There is no question," says Sterling, "that the selection and implementation of an EHR is a 'bet-the-practice' proposition. If you fail, you end up with more costs and greater frustration. Yet, few practices will be able to avoid implementing EHRs."
