OptumInsight (Ingenix) held their 5th Annual CareTracker User Conference in Boston, MA on October 5th, 6th and 7th. Dr Perry Koseff was invited to participate on the physician panel at the Ingenix CareTracker User Group. The panel of physicians discussed the trials and tribulations with implementing EMR in their office. Doctors discussed a variety of processes that included selection of hardware (laptop, desktop, Dragon) and if they went full EMR from Day 1 or gradual EMR implementation.
The panel participants answered questions how their patients responded to EMR. Each doctor discussed how each implemented their transition to EMR i.e. Did the doctor work on the computer when the patient was in the room, or chart the visit in privacy of their own office? The physicians all agreed this was a personal preference based on their method of practice. CareTracker provides a broad range of opportunities for electronic medical record implementation.
