Managing Growth with Cloud-based EHR and Practice Management Services

by Andrew Scutro, Senior Associate, Communications

On Wednesday, we held a webinar on recommended strategies for expanding your group practice. In case you missed it, you can participate any time through our free on-demand webinar site.

We've created a whitepaper on this topic packed with guidelines, graphs, examples and other valuable information but here’s a preview of our seven strategies:

To drive successful growth, bring on new providers without major capital expenditure.

It may sound obvious, but the less capital you need to expend in order to grow, the better. Installing, maintaining and upgrading a conventional, software-based electronic health record can be a significant expense: more than $46,000 per physician over the first year, according to a recent study.

An alternative to consider is the cloud-based service model, where there are no upgrade costs and your investment in hardware and IT maintenance staff is significantly reduced. With the cloud-based services model, all providers access a single instance of software, on a network that’s fully maintained and regularly updated—for free—by the service provider.

You’ll learn what’s pushing the growth trend, why you need to establish an efficient workflow, how to steer around common pitfalls and why cloud-based EHR services make implementation scalable to your expansion plans. Register now to check out this on-demand webinar.
