Orthopedic EMR 2018
Who Meets the Needs of Orthopedic Practices?

Authored by: | Read Time: 3 minutes

Given the growing utilization of orthopedic treatments, it is more important than ever for orthopedic practices to have EMR technology that enables clinician, patient, and financial success. However, KLAS’ Arch Collaborative research—which has collected EMR usability surveys from over 65,000 clinicians—indicates that orthopedists are some of the most dissatisfied EMR users. These users understand that just because an EMR is highly usable in other settings doesn’t mean it is the right fit for orthopedics. Many vendors say they can provide the unique functionality, usability, and workflows orthopedists need, but which actually deliver on these promises? And how do the various general EMRs compare to orthopedic-specific solutions? To find out, KLAS interviewed 120 healthcare professionals—including orthopedists, directors, CMIOs, practice administrators, nurses, and others—at both hospitals and standalone orthopedic practices.
