    We are in the process of looking for a new EMR. We have three vendors we are considering. I am interested in hearing from others on their experience. This would be my first time converting to a new EMR from a manager's perspective. What are some things to consider in regards to HIM? What were some challenges? What were some successes?

    Our top contender right now is Qualifacts. If any of you are using Qualifacts or have used Qualifacts in the past, I would be interested in chatting with you.

    Thanks for your input. I appreciate it!

    Hi Mai,

    From my experience, the following are items to make sure you have well defined prior to conversion:

    SLA - Service Level Agreement with the vendor
    Data Migration plan and who will be responsible for the data migration
    Types of reports available from new software and ability to generate new reporting and analysis
    Ability to receive files from external sources (ex labs) and ability to send files (ex to external auditors)
    Data backup

    I hope this helps,
    Anita
