So, you’ve started your journey to find the right electronic health record (EHR) partner. Often times it can be hard to differentiate software from software during a demonstration, and even more difficult to see which partner best fits your organization. It’s important to know what to look for, what questions to ask and what to expect when beginning an EHR demo process. It can be an overwhelming process, so we constructed some key questions and ideas for you to consider.
Keep in mind that every demo is different, especially varying from technology company to technology company. For example, beware of a vendor who uses PowerPoint in lieu of a live demonstration. Performing a live demonstration can help prove the quality of the partner and software. In addition, if you’re planning to host an upcoming demo, check to make sure your facility has good connectivity. Ask if the vendor requires internet connectivity and provide them with the best connectivity possibility. Often times the performance of the demonstration depends on the ability to connect to the internet.
An EHR demo can be highly informative and help you make the right decision when picking a partner. In order to optimize each session, take time to get prepared, assess your organization’s needs and set expectations. Most importantly, ask the right questions before, during and after the demonstration so you can partner with the EHR vendor who will best suit your needs and goals.
