Healthcare Practice Strategies - Spring 2014 - Intro
Welcome to the spring issue of Practice Strategies. As change continues to sweep through the entire healthcare system, we hope you will find the news, updates and information you need to succeed.
With physicians increasingly experiencing frustration in their quest for meaningful use, Extricating Yourself From a Bad EHR Contract is a particularly timely topic. Of course, breaking up with your EHR vendor doesn't have to be an ordeal, and this article provides plenty of clear-headed guidance.
An accompanying article, Smoothing the Transition, provides actionable steps for easing the transition to a new EHR system — everything from determining an exit strategy to budgeting sufficient funds.
Our article, Is The Grass Really Greener?, takes a hard look at the pros and cons of being an employed physician with a hospital or health system. A related sidebar provides thinking on such critical considerations as control, flexibility and salary.
Finally, Life After ICD-10 explores the potential value of the new code set to physicians who leverage it properly.
