EHR for Mobile Radiologist
« on: November 14, 2010, 10:57:34 AM »
Will mobile radiologists benefit from using EHR?  I am researching to find information.  This radiologist specifically provides ultrasounds for expecting mothers at various clinics but has office locations also.  A good percentage of the patients are Medicaid.

All practices/providers will benefit from EHR and besides it's going to be mandatory anyway..The downside is training, implementation and costs, but long term benefits are said to outweigh the down side.

Not all providers are eligible for the incentive payments with EHR.  The provider should check with HIMSS to find out if his/her specialty is eligible.
