Be In The Cost Control Seat Of Your Next EHR: An Exploration Of Typical Cost Drivers Within An EHR Purchase

GETTYSBURG, Pa., Feb. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Many behavioral health organizations (BHOs) are re-evaluating their current electronic health record (EHR) and vendors in order determine if they can continue to partner to meet the new administrative, clinical, and billing demands facing the behavioral health industry. The BHOs entering into the re-purchasing EHR market are more experienced technology buyers and are utilizing their experience to create a more stringent EHR vendor evaluation process. However, one factor that has not changed are the limited technology budgets within the behavioral health industry.
