  • Internal ROI Forecast

  • ASP vs Client-Server EMRs

  • New Funding Opportunity?

    • CMS EMR Demonstration


Roi forecast l.jpg

ROI Forecast

  • “Benefits Portfolio” of an EMR:

    • Quantifiable vs Anecdotal

    • Financial vs Qualitative

  • The entire portfolio is important, although only quantifiable, financial benefits form basis for ROI

  • Financial benefits are almost entirely based on Operational Improvements


Productivity l.jpg

Improved physician workflow

OV time reduced due to faster pre-encounter chart review & post-encounter documentation

Fractional FTE savings:

Reduction in clinical messaging

Staff time to process 1 med request typically reduced by 80% (12 min)

Elimination of business office outsourcing expenses through an interfaced PMS

Eliminate paper chart supplies (up to $3/chart)

Reduce clerical (medical records) personnel

Reduce or eliminate transcription costs
