EHRs in the Urology Office

Howard W. Follis, MD
Published: Wednesday, Jul 11, 2012
One of the most interesting aspects of the use of EHRs is the ability to collect data on practice patterns, utilization of resources, and outcomes to use for a variety of purposes. As reimbursement methodology continues to shift from fee-forservice to outcomes-based or evidence-based methodology, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, insurance companies, and third party payers are increasingly requiring providers to collect and present data for analysis. As a result, accurate EHR data will become a critical part of the reimbursement of urologists in the near future. Thus, the implementation of a well-designed EHR is no longer optional, and should be considered and undertaken by all urologists in the near future.
