EMR-EHR Implementation and Conversion—Frequently Asked Questions


Are electronic medical records safe?

The need for privacy and security lies at the core of the EMR movement. Electronic records are safer than their paper predecessors because they require specific, user-verified credentials such as usernames and passwords in order to gain access to delicate information. In addition, EMR systems keep a history of access, thus ensuring accountability at all levels.

What benefits do EMRs provide to both patients and healthcare facilities?

While electronic medical records are built to house the medical and treatment histories of patients, the systems can also provide a broader view of a patient’s care. One key benefit of this type of recordkeeping system is the portability they can offer to healthcare facilities and providers across organizations. As EMRs are designed as a tool to share information across laboratories, specialists, medical imaging facilities, pharmacies, emergency facilities, and other providers, they are a critical step in the patient care process, providing the most up-to-date information available regarding patient care and treatment to both new, and existing, physicians and facilities.


What can a healthcare facility expect during the EMR transition process?

Once the EMR system is installed and ready for use, healthcare facilities can expect staff to experience a learning curve with regards to using the new software and system. This is standard for these types of conversions, and requires forethought to ensure that patient care, productivity—and the bottom line—is in no way affected. Facilities should plan to reach out to experienced companies that provide short-term EMR staffing and training solutions during conversion periods.

NurseChoice is a leader in EMR implementation support and staffing, and can provide RN’s who are EMR experienced and ready to take on any 4-13 week assignments, short-term travel nursing jobs, and other opportunities.


What does “Meaningful Use” mean?

Meaningful use is the set of standards defined by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Incentive Programs that governs the use of electronic health records. In addition, it allows eligible facilities and hospitals to earn incentive payments by meeting specific criteria by dictated deadlines.


What is EMR (electronic medical record)?

Electronic Medical Records (aka electronic health records) are designed to take the place of traditional patient recordkeeping in healthcare facilities. New government mandated regulations require healthcare facilities to make the transition to electronic recordkeeping by certain dates.
